Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Poggiale shows great energy and momentum. It opens with masculine tones of leather and fire-cured tobacco that are absolutely stunning next to the black currant and jellied blackberry. The flavor intensity is of special note. The finish is elegant, silky and long. This is a terrific effort. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025."

Product Description:

"Made from 90% Sangioveto, 5% Canaiolo, and 5% Ciliegiolo grown in the Il Poggiale vineyard, the grapes come from an elevation of almost 1,500 feet above sea level. The combination of high elevation and extremely low yields results in a wine that manages to simultaneously show both restraint and layered richness. This classic red holds great aging capability. This Riserva is a brilliant garnet color with layered aromas of red cherries, earth, rose flowers, and leather. On the palate, the wine shows excellent structure with firm, integrated tannins and is full-bodied with plenty of spice." -Importer
