Fattoria Rodáno has produced a bright, attractive and honest wine in this warm vintage. The 2015 Chianti Classico drinks with smooth ease and spreads warmly over the palate. The wine is infused with dark plum, cherry, spice and pressed rose. There is considerable weight and substance at the back, yet the wine is never heavy or too thick.
