Richard Baudains

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Carob and caramel nose, with black fruit undertones. Concentrated, solid, modern blend palate with length and good pure fruit finish.

Emily O'Hare

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Good colour, not too thick or opaque. Palate is thick and flavoursome, but too much of a mouthful at the moment – but Riserva so needs time. Tick box commercial Riserva.

Michael Palij

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Gorgeous nose of ripe red and black fruit overlaid with spicy oak and the first hints of secondary complexity. Although the nose hints at contemporary vinification the palate retains a certain aristocratic bearing. The palate is exceptionally long with tannins and acidity supporting the fruit. Lovely long finish and all the structural components appear to be in good balance.
