Winemaker 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.

Wine Spectator

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.
