Villa del Cigliano

Richard Baudains

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Spicy-floral nose with hints of smoky bacon. Tense, nervy palate, lots of oak, high acid finish, juicy fruit.

Emily O'Hare

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Clear and bright, smells like an iced bun. Yeasty, nutty, ripe fruit sweetness, high acid, tannins rather severe with dry, bitter finish.

Michael Palij

Tasting: Chianti Classico Riserva

Classic, restrained nose of strawberry, cold tea, blueberries. No obvious oak – a welcome relief – and fruit-derived complexity. Wonderful length – fine tannins and medium + acidity providing necessary balance to the ripe fruit. Alcohol doesn’t intrude which is a real achievement in this vintage when phenolic ripeness came at the expense of freshness.
