Very pretty depth of fruit with walnut, plum and tea aromas and flavors. Medium body, integrated tannins and a ultra-fine finish. Very classy riserva.

Wine Enthusiast
This wine is rewarding and satisfying to drink. The 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Berardo opens to a dark garnet color and shows a deep ruby color saturation. The bouquet offers depth and intensity with dark fruit, plum and sweet cherry. You also get exotic spice, cumin and grilled rosemary. The effect is penetrating and long-lasting. This is a richly layered Sangiovese that wraps lavishly over the palate. I'm sure the wine's evolutionary track will reward those with the patience to wait. But if you can't wait, the intensity of the primary fruit makes it a pleasure to drink in the near term as well.

Winemaker Notes

This riserva has a luminous ruby red color. Appealing aromas of dark cherries, plums, sweet spice, violets, vanilla and hints of dark chocolate and menthol emerge on the nose. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied but smooth with an almost creamy mouthfeel. Tannins are well integrated with the alcohol, and lead to a subtly sweet, silky finish.

Pair this wine with Korean short ribs, ragù sauces, gnocchi with roasted rabbit, and beef negimaki.
