A complex and elegant bouquet highlighted by persistent raspberry and vanilla aromas. It is warm and full with a velvety mouthfeel and a long, generous finish. This Riserva will reward extensive cellaring and pairs perfectly with roasts and game.

Wine SpectatorSmells like a little Cabernet Sauvignon enhancing the Sangiovese in this black currant- and cherry-flavored red (but it's actually Canaiolo, with a bit of Mammolo and Colorino). Cedar, thyme, iron and sanguine notes round out the palate as this cruises to a lingering aftertaste. Shows excellent structure and balance. Best from 2020 through 2035. 17,800 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva is a richly textured expression that is packed tight with ripe fruit, black cherry, moist soil and cigar box. You get a lot of power and density in this warm-climate Tuscan red (made with 90% Sangiovese and 20% Canaiolo). In fact, it almost goes overboard, maybe just for a moment, but ultimately regains and maintains its sense of balance. Cured tobacco and smoke fill in the rear. Some 200,000 bottles were produced.
