"The Chianti Classico Riserve comes from a selection of grapes from vineyards which are more suitable for long maturing. Vinified in steel with a maceration of about 20 days, and as a second passage, it is aged in smaller wooden barrels for about 18 months, to then rest for a minimum of 3 months in bottle." —winemaker

Blend: 90% Sangiovese, 10% Canaiolo and Colorino
#58, Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2016

"Layered and pretty red with cherry and light orange undertones. Some dusty texture. Medium body, good acidity and a clean finish. A beautiful riserva with finesse and tension. Drink now." —JamesSuckling.com

"Pure cherry takes center stage, framed by tar, earth, tobacco and mineral elements. Vivid and elegant, showing fine intensity and equilibrium, with a lingering aftertaste. Drink now through 2020. 17,000 cases imported. Smart Buy." —Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator

"The 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva is an absolute joy to taste. Sensual and layered in the glass, the 2013 is built on a total sense of finesse. Sweet floral notes, tobacco, cedar and dried flowers give the 2013 its super-classic profile. Still a bit tightly wound, this uber-classic 2013 will benefit from cellaring. Year in year out, this is one of my favorite Chianti Classicos in its price range. Drinking window: 2018 - 2033." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous
