"The 2015 Flaccianello della Pieve is truly remarkable. An exotic mélange of black cherry jam, chocolate, grilled herbs and spice melds together in a huge, beautifully layered wine of exceptional class and pedigree. The 2015 manages to be dense and rich, but never overdone. The 2015 spent 20 months in French oak, 80%, followed by 6 months in cask. It is the final phase of aging in large wood that seems to help integrating the smaller oak influence. The 2015 is shaping up to be a modern-day icon. There's not much more to it than that. Drinking window: 2022-2045. 98 points

Giovanni Manetti is one of the leading producers in Chianti Classico, both for his wines and the influence he wields as the newly elected president of the Consorzio del Chianti Classico. Over the last few years, Manetti has moved towards a style that emphasizes greater energy in the wines and less overt oak influence. Readers will find all that and more in these exceptional new releases. The top wines are thrilling, but the straight Chianti Classico is equally worthy of attention. To be frank, it is better than the top wine at a number of estates.
