Borgo Salcetino

Richard Baudains

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Sweet and gamey on the nose, palate a little too jammy, but good chunky concentration and pure Sangiovese red fruit finish. Needs time.

Emily O'Hare

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Polished, ripe, intensely fruity Chianti Riserva, if a little chunky.

Michael Palij

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Medium ruby, youthful, fresh and elegant nose reminiscent of red currant, Parma violets, hazelnuts, Bovril and buttered toast. The oak and the fruit work well and are pulling in the same direction. There’s real complexity here and the palate is both broad and long. This is an utterly delicious glass of wine that proves the potential of the region and the quality of 2009.
