    Professional Ratings: 91 The Wine Advocate

    Region: Tuscany, Italy

    Varietal: Sangiovese

    Style: Smooth & Supple

    Item no. 114886

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Ruby red appearance with rich, intense tones. Spicy nose with floral notes and hints of wild berry (red and black), accompanied by mineral impressions and light toasted notes. Spice re-appears on the palate, which displays firm but supple tannins, and the finale is vigorous and taut. Overall, the wine is compelling for its flavor-rich mid-palate and supporting acidity.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva possess wonderful depth in its black cherries, licorice, tar, smoke and leather... Smoke, incense and licorce reappear on the juicy finish. A powerful vein of intense minerality gives the wine its center.

    Very tasty Chianti, not too dry, and a good long finish. Will buy again.
