About

93

"The aromas of dried fruits and figs are fascinating. Full body, round and chewy tannins plus a minerally, salty and savory finish. Excellent selected and special Chianti Classico. Drink or hold."

91 Wine Enthusiast

"Aromas of iris, plum, leather and a whiff of clove lead the nose. The firm, savory palate offers black cherry, red currant, licorice, black pepper and tobacco backed up by assertive, fine-grained tannins. Drink 2016–2022."

90 Wine Spectator

"Ripe, with black cherry and plum flavors, this red displays spice, leather and tobacco notes. Dense and monolithic today, showing fruit and structure underneath. Fine length. Best from 2018 through 2027."
