Winemaker Notes

This Chianti Classico Riserva has a ruby red hue with a trace of garnet. The nose is elegant, displaying hints of spice and fruit. This is a well-structured wine with evident tannins and long persistance.

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva (Sangiovese) is a beautiful, precise wine laced with sweet dark cherries, menthol, tobacco, minerals and spices. It shows gorgeous clarity and precision in a highly appealing, mid-weight style. The Riserva spent 24 months in oak, 80% cask and 20% new barriques, a much better balance for the fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2023.
TP 91
Tasting Panel
A classic rendition of Sangiovese: bright, fresh and juicy with berries and a hint of violets; tangy, charming and nervy with depth and lovely structure; long and balanced.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Blueberry and blackberry flavors are married to a lean, wiry frame. Hints of flowers and mineral add dimension, and this closes down on the finish. Needs time. To be released spring 2012. Best from 2014 through 2024.
