Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva Berardenga is a wine of increased depth and power. The bouquet is redolent of dark fruit, dried cherry, grilled herbs and moist clay that has been wetted by rain drops. The wine shows power and determination on the close that gives it momentum and persistence. This wine shows good possibility for further evolution in the bottle over the next five years or more.
Wine SpectatorFlavors of black cherry, plum, earth, chestnut, leather and bark are matched to a dense, brooding profile. Needs time to find balance, while cherry notes lurk beneath as this plays out on the firm, dry finish. Best from 2022 through 2036. 5,000 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastAromas of dark culinary spice, mature berry and a whiff of new leather emerge in the glass. The tightly wound, tense palate offers wild cherry, licorice and clove framed in taut, fine-grained tannins. Give this another year or two at least to fully develop. Drink 2019-2025.
