Richard Baudains

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Serious, oaky-tannic nose with dense plummy fruit. Very dry tannins, but good acid-fruit energy. Bit over extracted, but made to last.

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Charming red, super spiced and concentrated. Delicious to drink on its own but perhaps less so with food.

Michael Palij

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Unbelievably ripe and alcoholic on the nose and palate. A caricature of Sangiovese either from a low altitude vineyard or from a winemaker who prizes ripeness above all. 2009 demanded a steady hand in the vineyard and this wine is all over the place.
