    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Chianti Classico Riserva has a ruby-red hue with a trace of garnet. The nose is elegant, displaying hints of spice and fruit. This a well-structured wine with smooth tannins and a long finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The sweet black cherry, blackberry and spice flavors highlight this powerful, polished red. The fruit, earth and spice notes prevail as the tannic grip emerges on the finish.

    Dried fruits with hints of pepper and dark chocolate on the nose. Full and chewy yet balanced and delicious.

    At the heart of the Chianti Classico region, this estate is responsible for some of the most elegant and traditional expressions of this fabled wine. A bright cherry flavor is framed by oak-driven tones of vanilla spice and mocha.

    Medium ruby-red. Brooding aromas of redcurrant, graphite, violet and spices. Sweet and pliant in the mouth but not soft, with pure flavors of dark plum, redcurrant and gunflint. Finishes with noble tannins and good backbone. This is currently still folded in on itself: I'd cellar it another two years prior to opening a bottle.

    International Wine Cellar

    Fresh, bright and racy with tangy plum and raspberry fruit; juicy, lively and charming with balance, depth and style; snappy and long.

    The description doesn't mention this, but the label says this one is from organic vines/grapes. A nice one to collect.
