Chianti Geografico

Richard Baudains

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Beer-yeasty nose, dry tannins, mid-weight palate with dried prune finish. Slightly fragile.

Emily O'Hare

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Plummy, black fruity Chianti, generous and fruity but lacks structure.

Michael Palij

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Attractive nose with notes of menthol, toast, liquorice and vanilla. Restrained initially but actually quite hedonistic with a little time in the glass. This is a complex, brooding, extremely concentrated glass of wine with oak and fruit both in abundance. This finish is plush and unfolds convincingly with layers of black fruit and authoritative tannins and acidity
