The Riserva Chianti Classico persuades through elegance and finesse. Sangiovese by heart with a little addition of Merlot, this wine ages for almost two years in French oak barrels before being bottled and aged for further 6-9 months on the bottle before release. The longer aging helps the wine to gain structure and longevity and makes it an ideal partner for any festive meal.

Wine Advocate

The 2007 Chianti Classico Riserva is warm, rich and totally engaging. French oak adds volume and texture to the attractive dark red fruit, with lovely intensity that carries through to the generous, round finish. This is a fairly forward 2007 that doesn't appear to be built for the long haul. Still, it should offer highly rewarding drinking for at least a few years. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2017.

Score: 90. —Antonio Galloni, October 2010.
