Wine SpectatorA broad, rangy Chianti Classico, featuring cherry, leather, tobacco and mineral flavors. Balanced, staying focused and long on the tobacco- and licorice-tinged aftertaste. Drink now through 2022. 3,000 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Chianti Classico Riserva (made with organically farmed fruit) shows defined tones of dark chocolate and spice backed by a much larger component of red cherry fruit and blackberry. This Riserva shows a pretty sense of restraint and authority with bright berry notes and dried spice that are integrated and fine. It plays the elegance card well.
