Buondonno, Chianti Classico Riserva, Tuscany, 2009



  • Grape Variety: Sangiovese
  • Drink: 2013 - 2016



Richard Baudains

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Tobacco leaf, touch of incense, pure and long. Palate; smooth tannins, quite alcoholic, long sweet and spicy, almost exotic on the finish. Penalised by low acidity.

Emily O'Hare

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Spicy, sweet nose – high acid, tannins feel slightly slack, good intensity of fruit – feels more like a good Chianti than a Riserva.

Michael Palij

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Slightly volatile, medicinal, and rather charmless effort. No idea what the aim is here.
