"Chianti Classico embodies the intensity and freshness of our territory. The austere elegance of Sangiovese is enhanced by the addition of variable percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The result is a wine, which is fresh, but also intense, fruity, full bodied and balanced. It has a good acidity and a lingering taste." —winemaker
"A rich core of cherry, black currant and violet sits apart from the granular tannins in this sinewy red. Has everything in the right proportions, so give this a year or so to integrate more fully. Best from 2018 through 2024. 2,916 cases made." —Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator

"Maurizia Di Napoli's 2013 Chianti Classico was released in May (much earlier than usual) to make up for shortages of the 2012 vintage. This is a beautiful expression of Sangiovese with fine tannins and tight consistency. The wine shows the elegance and the sharp focus that is the hallmark of this stunning property in Panzano-in-Chianti. The wine is 90% Sangiovese with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot." —Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

"Rampolla's 2013 Chianti Classico is dark, sensual and inviting. Sweet red cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and tobacco flesh out in a pliant Chianti Classico that offers both plenty of fruit and structure. Ideally, readers should cellar the 2013 for at least another year to allow the full breadth of flavors and textures to open up. The style is rich, intense and powerful to the core. In other words; classic Rampolla. Drinking window: 2015 - 2023." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"Very silky and balanced with refined tannins, blackberry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Medium body, flavorful finish. Always and beauty and from organically grown grapes. Drink now." —JamesSuckling.com
