Wine SpectatorLeather, fading cherry, spice, woodsy and iron notes highlight this red. Balanced and solidly built, in a traditional style, with a long, densely structured aftertaste. Still on the upswing, and should reach its peak in the next three to five years. Drink now through 2035.
Wine EnthusiastAromas of iris, tilled soil, new leather, chopped mint and ground clove take shape in the glass. The vibrant, austere palate delivers Marasca cherry, cranberry, espresso and a toasted note while a hint of tobacco marks the close. Close-grained tannins provide assertive support. Give this time to fully develop. Drink 2021-2031.
Wine AdvocateBadia a Coltibuono always promotes a traditional and streamlined winemaking style. The 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva perfectly fits this billing. This is a bright, ruby colored and mid-weight effort. The wine sits pretty in the glass, reflecting the ambient light. Sour cherry, wild blueberry and forest berries emerge from the bouquet with zest and determination. The mouthfeel shows more length than it does power or extract. It glides over the palate with silky intensity. Mild hints of tobacco and campfire ash appear on the finish.
