Reviews and Accolades
93 Points/James Suckling
Beautiful depth to this Chianti Classico with cherry, wet earth and mushroom aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, tight and lightly chewy with firmness and focus. Drink or hold.
The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva is laced with dark cherry, plum, chocolate, new leather, licorice and mint. A dollop of Merlot adds mid-palate juiciness and pliancy, along with soft contours that make the wine a real pleasure to taste and drink, even in the early going. This forward, succulent Riserva certainly has plenty to offer.
90 Points/Wine Enthusiast
Made with 95% Sangiovese and 5% Merlot, this offers aromas of black-skinned berry, leather and cedar. The bright, balanced palate features black cherry, licorice and white pepper alongside silky tannins and fresh acidity.
