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

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
