"The 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Badia a Passignano is a terrific example of how responsive Sangiovese can be to site. Here, the flavors are darker and richer, while at the same time the wine possesses a level of textural resonance and breadth that distinguishes it from the more linear wines Antinori makes at the Tignanello vineyard. Black cherry, plum, lavender, spice and menthol fill out the wine's frame effortlessly. This is another stellar wine from Antinori. Drinking window: 2020-2035. 94 points

This is a stellar set of wines from top to bottom. In the 2015s, readers will find everything from an absolutely delicious Villa Antinori all the way to sublime editions of Tignanello and Solaia, and a number of other options in between. In recent years, the winemaking team headed by Renzo Cotarello has shifted towards a style that seeks more energy and vibrancy in the wines than in the past, something that is very much in evidence in tasting through this range.
