    Winemaker's Notes:

    Color: Ruby red tending towards garnet.

    Bouquet: Rich, intense and complex.

    Taste: Dry, soft, gently tannic with good structure.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2006 Chianti Classico Riserva is a big, super-ripe wine loaded with black cherries, blueberries, French oak and spices. Stylistically, this is a concentrated, voluminous Riserva with terrific persistence and balance. It is one of the finest wines I have tasted here in some time. The Riserva spent 24 months in French oak. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018.

    The Wine Advocate

    This Riserva expression of Chianti Classico reveals ripe richness and plush layers of blackberry, cherry, spice, leather and tobacco. Smooth tannins and a compact texture would match white meat or pork.

    Just enjoyed last night; excellent. Deep dish pizza and Chianti--what can be better. Rich flavor.
