Critical Acclaim

94
James Suckling
A 2015 red with opulent dark fruits such as ripe raspberries and black currants follow through to medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a deliciously fresh finish. Just the right acid and fruit balance to give it nerve and brillance. Drink in 2021.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Badia a Passignano is a pure expression of Sangiovese. Fruit is sourced from the San Donato area of the appellation that is not an official subzone yet but is increasingly emerging as such. This wine is distinguished by a beautiful level of openness and softness (on the Sangiovese spectrum, which means you also get a bright dose of acidity). That softness or lushness comes in part due to the warm vintage but also thanks to the winemaking approach that relies on larger barrels (from 300 to 500 liters) and Hungarian oak that tends to be more porous and thickly textured for increased passage of oxygen. The wine offers beautiful balance between its dark fruit and savory spice comments. This Chianti Classico Gran Selezione was not produced in 2014.

Decanter
Antinori's Badia a Passignano estate is located in the commune of San Casciano Val di Pesa, just 3 kilometres south of Tenuta Tignanello. It boasts predominately calcareous soil and is planted with clones selected from Tignanello's vineyards. Rich fruit references the warm summer but it's girdled by sleek, polished tannins. Currently swathed in heady spice and balsamic herbs, this needs another year to reveal the full spectrum of its nuances and will give plenty of drinking pleasure for at least a decade after that.

Wine Spectator
A traditional style, this red exhibits cherry, plum, leather and tobacco flavors. The wood aging lends dryness to the tannins now, yet there is an essence of ripe fruit midpalate and a lot of energy on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2042.

Discover Blended Red Wine Wines

In the United States, a red mix is any American wine that isn't produced from a single grape type. It's an odd classification since many, if not all, red wines are and have always been mixes. A grand cru Bordeaux produced entirely of Cabernet, as well as Chiantis made entirely of Sangiovese, are the exception rather than the norm. In addition, California law only requires a wine's label to contain 75% of the grape type.

Winemakers combine grapes because it enables them to create a wine in a sense. A splash of Merlot may help soften Cabernet's tannins, while a dash of Syrah can give watery, inexpensive Pinot some punch. Blending is common in several regions: Rioja, for example, has traditionally blended Tempranillo, Graciano, and Garnacha. Many modern, inexpensive red blends, on the other hand, are simply created for mass appeal—lots of superripe, black fruit and no acidity—using whatever varietals would suffice.
