Ruby red, with good hue and intensity. Spicy with notes of flowers, wild berries and mineral tones. Notes of spices and fresh fruit, smooth tannins and consistent, good structure on the palate.

Wine Advocate

The 2009 Chianti Classico Riserva is stunningly beautiful. It boasts a great core of dark red fruit, licorice, spices, new leather and herbs. The 2009 impresses for its mid-palate density and sheer power. This is a great showing. The 2009 can be enjoyed today, but it is rather muscular, and is probably best suited for aging a few years. This is a terrific showing. A recent bottle of the 1995 was stunning in its beauty. The Riserva is 100% Sangiovese aged in a combination of casks and smaller French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.

Just when I thought I was familiar with the wines of Felsina, the estate comes through with one of the very best sets of new releases I have ever tasted. From top to bottom, these are marvelous wines that deserve serious attention. Proprietor Giuseppe Mazzocolin has stepped down from some of his day-to-day duties, but the wines are as good as they have ever been. Felsina fans might also enjoy the Rancia vertical published in Issue 201 from the one and only complete Rancia tasting ever staged.

Score: 93. —Antonio Galloni, June 2012.
