95pts Decanter

Opens on the nose with violets, spice, a hint of wood smoke, as well as plum and sour cherry, which carries through to a full-bodied palate, where the volume is supported by a juicy acidity. A mineral, wet stone finish rounds off a wine of depth and complexity. Drinking now but built to last. Drinking 2024-2034+

94pts Jeb Dunnuck

I love the transparency and purity of this wine. Pouring a bright red color, the 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva is packed with raspberry liqueur, fresh rose perfume, sweet herbs, and cedar. Medium-bodied, it is gorgeous with ultra-fine tannins, an elegant feel, and a Burgundian sensibility. It’s a very pretty wine with balanced, fresh acidity, and its fruit lasts through the finish. Gorgeous. Drink 2024-2040.

93pts James Suckling

This is showing aromas of nutmeg, sandalwood, vanilla, tapenade and sour cherries. Full-bodied with polished and creamy tannins. Enveloping, with fantastic concentration and length. Drink or hold.

Winemaker Notes

This Chianti Classico Riserva D.O.C.G. comes from a selection of Sangiovese grapes from two different vineyards: Il Corno and Il Selvale. 

Clear ruby in color, with soft garnet highlights. Intense fragrance of brushwood with scents of spices and vanilla. Long and balanced mouthfeel, with a savoury and persistent finish.

Ideal for serving with red meats or game Recommended with hard, very mature cheeses.

Winery Notes

The organic Castello di Radda estate is located in Radda, a village that is home to some of the highest sites in Chianti Classico. The estate was completely replanted with predominantly Sangiovese when AGB arrived in 2003. The property includes just under 40ha of vineyard, including a plot in the prestigious cru of Vertine in nearby Gaiole. The combination of the cool climate and stony galestro soils makes for wines of firm structure and aromatic intensity.

Blend: 100% Sangiovese
