Richard Baudains

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Blackberry, cassis and cinnamon nose. Very positive impact on the palate, good development and long finish. Concentrated, linear, balanced, serious wine.

Emily O'Hare

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Slightly foxy on nose, palate has breadth and concentration but flavours do not feel clean. Lacks fruit and is too dried out and slightly over-ripe.

Michael Palij

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Very Burgundian nose with a hint of barnyard, red fruit compote and a compact core of fruit and oak. The palate begins well but the initial blast of ripe fruit morphs into an attenuated finish with little to reward those with patience.
