Lots of ripe cherries and berries with undergrowth and mushroom undertones, as well as ash. It’s full-bodied with round, creamy tannins and a medium-chewy finish. A solid Chianti Classico here. Give it a year or two to soften. Real deal.

92 Antonio Galloni - Vinous

THE 2018 CHIANTI CLASSICO RISERVA IS A BOLD POWERFUL WINE. BLACK CHERRY, IRON, TAR, MENTHOL AND LICORICE GIVE THE 2018 A SUPER-DISTINCTIVE, WILD PROFILE. THERE IS PLENTY OF DEPTH AND VOLUME. IN 2018, THE RISERVA OFFERS A DECIDEDLY WILD, GAMY EXPRESSION OF SANGIOVESE. BEST OF ALL, THE RISERVA REMAINS A FABULOUS VALUE.

Product Description:

The Chianti Classico Riserva comes from a selection of grapes from vineyards which are more suitable for long maturing. Vinified in steel with a maceration of about 20 days, and as a second passage, it is aged in smaller wooden barrels for about 18 months, to then rest for a minimum of 3 months in glass. An exceptional compliment to red meats, roasts and game.
