Richard Baudains

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Black cherry and iris, with touches of powder puff, saline nuance. Round entry, firm middle and long concentrated fruit finish, with lovely Sangiovese tang.

Emily O'Hare

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Slightly sweet, international, beautifully balanced, just lack connection with this Riserva.

Michael Palij

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Appealing nose of red currant, pomegranate, mocha, slightly unripe rose hip and vegetal note. Elegant, refined and delicate with no obvious oak but the fruit is one-dimensional and lacks the layers that would mark this out. Attractive but undistinguished.
