Professional Wine Reviews for Tenuta Ormanni Chianti Classico Riserva Borro Del Diavolo 2015

Rated 93 by Wine Advocate
This is a terrific Tuscan wine that is deeply marked by a dusty mineral or salty note that I find absolutely irresistible. I love the way it immediately transports my thoughts to the galestro crushed rock soils found in the Barberino Val d'Elsa part of Chianti Classico. This is a dark and saturated expression that rounds off those focused mineral notes with plenty of ripe and succulent berry fruit. The balance between those two extremes, the wine's sweet versus savory sides, are expertly played forward in this classic vintage. Borro del Diavolo ages in new and neutral barrels for 20 months.

Winery Tenuta Ormanni

Region: Tuscany

The beautiful region of Tuscany has been associated with wine production for almost three thousand years, and as such is one of the oldest and most highly respected wine producing regions in the world. The hot, sunny climate supports quite a wide range of grapes, but the grape varietals most widely grown across this large region are Sangiovese and Vernaccia, both of which are used in the production of Tuscany's most distinctive red and white wines. Cabernet Sauvignon and other imported grape varietals have also flourished there for over two hundred years, but it wasn't until the 1970's and the rise of the 'Super Tuscans' that they were widely used, when the fine wineries of the region began experimenting with Bordeaux style red wines to great effect.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
