Professional Wine Reviews for Rodano Chianti Classico Bottesola 46 2015

Rated 93 by Wine Advocate
The 2015 Chianti Classico Bottesola N. 46 is a wine made from a single cask (from 90% Sangiovese with smaller parts Colorino and Canaiolo). That vessel (botte number 46) reveals more contouring and tightness (compared to botte number 27 also tasted here). It shows focused aromas of wild cherry, plum and dark spice. You still taste that fruity exuberance that comes from the hot 2015 vintage, but this wine is slightly more contained, subdued and elegant overall. I am giving this wine a slightly longer drinking window compared to the other wine, although the two are very similar. Only 2,666 bottles were produced.

Winery Rodano

Region: Tuscany

Tuscany has been producing fine wines for almost three thousand years, and as such is widely recognized as being one of the key Old World wine regions which have shaped the way we understand and enjoy quality wines throughout history. Interestingly, the region is typified by a unique soil type which is not particularly good for growing grapevines, but in Tuscany, the emphasis has always been on quality over quantity, and low yields with high levels of flavor and intensity are preferred, and have become a feature of the region's wine industry. The main grape varietals grown in Tuscany are Sangiovese for the distinctive, flavorful and complex red wines, and Vernaccia for the exquisite dry white wines, although the last couple of decades have seen more varietals grown and an increasing trend towards 'Bordeaux style' wines.

Country: Italy

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.
