Richard Baudains

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Jammy fruit and oak nose, alcoholic palate, fleshy, low acid, grapey fruit and very chunky finish. Needs time.

Emily O'Hare

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Smells a bit bordeaux’esque, too dark and concentrated with too much depth and not enough breadth. A good wine, very strong, I am sure will age well but whether it feels Italian with age?

Michael Palij

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Lean and vegetal on the nose with an unripe, stalky character emanating from the soul of this wine. Some ripe liquorice and soy sauce and a generous mid-palate but this remains slightly disassociated with the fruit and structure at odds.
