Expert's Choice: Chianti Classico Riserva 2010

1 4.65 5
2010 was a tricky vintage that turned out better than expected. Most agree that the wines have fine acidity that will contribute to their ageing potential, as well as tending to have lower alcohol than the super-ripe 2009s. See Stephen Brook's top 17 Chianti Classico Riserva 2010s here...

Lush black cherry nose, with power and generosity. Rich, opulent, and very concentrated, with succulence, spiciness, and power. There’s massive fruit here and quite good length, with moderate  acidity.
