>> "Here, the 2009 Riserva is outstanding: a medium wine that displays both elegance and complexity. It is full bodied and crisp, with excellent depth of flavor (plum, blueberry, cherry red currant, toast, vanilla, cedar) and a very long, lightly tannic finish. Can be aged. Great value. 100% Sangiovese. Aged 14 months in French oak barrels. 13.5%".

>> "Offers impressive aromas of blackberry and light toasty oak, with just a hint of sweet tobacco. There's lots of coconut and oak character on the palate, but this is concentrated and balanced. An enticing young Chianti Classico. Needs time to deliver all it has to offer." James Suckling on 2007 vintage.
