A mid-range Sangiovese. But at San Giusto a Rentennano, a mid-range is dazzling.
A basket of delicately interwoven fruit: blackberries, blackcurrants, black cherries, raspberries with a scent of violets and freshly cut grass. 
On the palate, the wine is perfectly structured with flavors of cherries, an earthy touch and a freshness that underlies a detailed and full of energy.

To be enjoyed as an aperitif with a Bruschetta or to accompany veal cutlets or duck breast.

 

Robert Parker : 94/100 

The Chianti Classico Riserva Le Baròncole 2015 shows the precision and finesse that characterize the magnificent wines of San Giusto a Rentennano at high altitude in Gaiole in Chianti. The wine presents an authentic Sangiovese (the blend is 97% Sangiovese and 3% Canaiolo) with tones of forest berries, blue violets, white truffle and grilled herbs. Its aromas are delicate and well integrated into each other, with harmonious transitions. The finish is dry and finely textured, with tannic tension that needs a few more years to unwind. That said, I wouldn't expect this warmer vintage to have the same longevity as the cooler 2013 vintage. The alcohol content is 15%. Some 14,397 bottles were produced.

Vinous : 95/100

The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva Le Baròncole is a real shock. In this vintage, the Baròncole brings together the richness of the year allied to a formidable structure. Even with all of its intensity, the 2015 retains striking freshness and liveliness from start to finish. The aeration in the glass seems to bring a new dimension of explosive energy. Bewitching with its beauty, detail and class, the 2015 is simply magnificent. The 2015 was aged in a combination of 30HL drums and barrels. Don't miss it.

Jancis Robinson : 17.5 + / 20 

Gaiole in Chianti. 97% Sangiovese, 3% Canaiolo. Sample in barrel.
Medium crimson. Fine, mineral nose, still a little closed. Sachets of grainy tannins interspersed with perfectly ripe fruit and succulent acidity. Beautifully balanced and complex finish.

James Suckling : 97/100 

It's extremely structured and polished with aromas and flavors of black cherries and damp earth that underscore this full bodied and racy red. Fantastic fruit and length. Continue for several minutes. To try in 2020.

Wine Spectator : 93/100

It is a dense and compact wine, whose matrix of powerful tannins retains the aromas of blackberry, blackcurrant, iron, earth and tar. There's energy here, and the long finish indicates future potential. Best from 2022 to 2043. 1,400 cases manufactured, 275 cases imported.

Falstaff : 94/100

Sparkling ruby with a slight garnet reflection. Attractive nose with ripe and crunchy fruits, after blackberries and wild raspberries, with some violet in the background. Full-bodied and captivating, it unfolds with dense and powerful tannins, lots of juicy, clear and precise fruit.
