Deep ruby red color. Intense and persistent with the typical notes of sweet violet and wild red berries. An austere, full-bodied wine, with succulent tannins and fresh acidity. Enriched with an aromatic complexity that originates from a delicate dosing of wood.
Pair with: grilled meats, roast pigeon, and rare carved beef.
Another Chianti Classico Riserva that shows such purity of fruit, with brambleberries, blackcurrants, morello cherries, dark plums and a dash of dried herbs. Loads of fresh fruit on the palate that’s set across a frame of pretty acidity and a web of finely wrought tannins. A chewy yet taut finish. Drink in 2022. - James Suckling 94 Points
Aromas of cherry, plum, earth and mineral indicate complexity right off the bat. The center is rich and packed with ripe fruit, while the muscular finish winds down slowly, showing elements of mineral, tar and tobacco. Serious, and should age well. Best from 2021 through 2032. 21,700 cases made. -BS - Wine Spectator Magazine 91 Points
