Richard Baudains

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Sweet berry nose, but very tannic, aggressive, over weight palate. Beefy.

Emily O'Hare

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Yippee transparency, smells slightly confected/tastes quite confected. Easy enough, zero challenge. too gluggable and dull for Riserva.

Michael Palij

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Very convincing nose, ripe blackberry, plum, raspberry with vanilla, coffee and spice from new oak. Palate is extremely impressive: very long and concentrated, ripe and resolved phenolics, fine acidity balancing the alcohol, integrated oak. An excellent example.
