    Dark and meaty on the nose. This is full of rich, savory elements that say"get ready and hold on tight". Bloody, gamey, touches of something almost like venison. Nice, bright attack that softens through the palate. Black pepper elements. As someone who absolutely loves wines from the Northern Rhone--this is as close as I've ever seen Chianti come to that. Just enough tannin to let you know this is legit Chianti, but doesn't go over the top--man, this wine just checks all my boxes. I would drink this in a second.

    I found this to be a textbook Chianti Classico at the Riserva level. This is quite a bit of wine for just under $20. I consider myself an unabashed Chianti/Sangiovese enthusiast. For me they represent the best of countryside cooking and simplicity. Anyone who’s been to Chianti is familiar with its beautiful rolling hills and intermittent quaint towns. There’s a reason this is one of the world’s most adored regions. The food and the wine back it all up. One sip of this elegant little red reveals the bright red cherry charm and warm spice with just a touch of leather.

    The Silla Il Piaggione takes me back two decades to a little farm house in the Classico region where I ate pappardelle al cinghiale while drinking a bottle of Chianti. It was one of the most seminal of my traveling experiences at the time, as it was the first time I had ever had wild boar with pasta and it was my first visit to the Tuscan countryside. Smells are some of the most powerful indicators of memories and this wine opens up many of them for me. The Silla is an earthy and classically styled Chianti, the nose is brimming with dried cherries, thyme and burnished saddle leather. The palate has wonderful texture that eludes to something bigger like a Brunello but the tannins soften adding length. The finish harkens back to the nose with those leathery notes and some baked cherries for good measure. A complete and enticing red for certain, speaking of those Tuscan hillsides that will surely create many new memories to fondly reflect upon.

    The nose of this wine is fascinating, waves of wild cherry, Tuscan herbs and leather. On the palate the wine shows an additional range with lots of soil character, iron, spice and sweet earth. While this might sound like a real traditional styled wine it actually is sort of midway between classic and more modern. Wonderful finish, long and spicy with lots of lift and a bit of grip.
