Retail Price: $30.00

Vinous, 93+ Points
"The 2016 Chianti Classico is a wine that almost belongs in its own category, as it has very little to do with most straight Chianti Classicos. Powerful, classically austere and so incredibly beautiful, the 2016 is a total stunner. Sweet red cherry, tobacco, cedar, mint and dried flowers all open up with a bit of coaxing. All of the translucent beauty of Sangiovese comes through in a Chianti Classico that will leave readers weak at the knees. Readers who open the 2016 young will want to give it a good bit of aeration. If I could only have one wine reviewed in this entire article, it might very well be the Castell'in Villa 2016. The price? Ridiculous for the level of pedigree. What a wine."

HOLD FOR FUTURE SHIPMENT
If weather conditions are unfavorable for the safe transport of your wine at the time of purchase, we are happy to hold your order at our facility for up to 6 months until weather conditions improve.
If you choose to ship your order Ground during such conditions, Bottle Barn is not liable for any damage caused by the weather to those wines.
Please note that when weather conditions are unfavorable and may cause damage to the wine in transit, we will automatically hold unless you request immediate shipment. In shipping against our recommendations you are waiving your right to a refund if the wine is damaged by extreme temperatures in transit.
As a courtesy instead of shipping you can also choose to pick-up your wine at our Santa Rosa store. To place an order for Curbside Pick-Up, please enter a local "shipping" address at checkout to see Curbside Pick-Up as a "shipping" option. Your wine will not be shipped, but this helps us verify you are local and able to pick-up. You may also enter our store address if you would prefer.
Items purchased online are generally available in store the same or next business day, and you will receive a notification via email when it is ready.
Curbside pick-ups will be held for at least 48 hours. If you have extenuating circumstances and need to extend your hold, please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
