92 Points Robert Parker: This Riserva has a luminous ruby red color. Appealing aromas of dark cherries, plums, sweet spice, violets, vanilla, and hints of dark chocolate and menthol emerge on the nose. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied but smooth with an almost creamy mouthfeel. Tannins are well integrated with the alcohol and lead to a subtly sweet, silky finish.
Fragrant blue flowers, new leather, underbrush, and camphor aromas come to the forefront. Smooth and delicious, the full-bodied palate features dried cherry, strawberry compote, licorice, and tobacco alongside taut, polished tannins. Drink 2023-2028.
This is a very subtly played Chianti Classico Riserva that opens to reveal brambleberries, dried orange peel, vanilla, tobacco, cedar, spice box, and grilled meats. Very structured on the palate with loads of firm tannins, coated with generous fruit, and refreshed by cutting acidity. Drink from 2023.
