94pts Wine Spectator

Smells like a little Cabernet Sauvignon enhancing the Sangiovese in this black currant– and cherry-flavored red. Cedar, thyme, iron and sanguine notes round out the palate as this cruises to a lingering aftertaste. Shows excellent structure and balance.

90pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva is a richly textured expression that is packed tight with ripe fruit, black cherry, moist soil and cigar box. You get a lot of power and density in this warm-climate Tuscan red (made with 90% Sangiovese and 20% Canaiolo). In fact, it almost goes overboard, maybe just for a moment, but ultimately regains and maintains its sense of balance. Cured tobacco and smoke fill in the rear. Some 200,000 bottles were produced.

Winemaker Notes

Intense ruby red with garnet reflections. The bouquet is elegant, full, harmonious and persistent with suggestions of vanilla and raspberry. The palate is long and velvety, full-bodied, generous and warm.

Perfect with roasts and game.
