Richard Baudains

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Raw oak on the nose and the palate. Short and raw.

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Big guns with coffee, toffee, black and red fruit. Feels entirely commercial, I’ve no interest whatsoever. Nothing to comment on, balanced yes, boring yes.

Michael Palij

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Deep colour, pronounced nose with intense black fruit and spice. This is intriguing with a powerful nose and plenty of oak. At the end of the day the oak wins this battle and the wine finishes with a dusty, tannic note that accentuates the alcohol.
