IWC 95 JS 93 Pts - According to the International Wine Cellar: Medium saturated red. Red plum, redcurrant, tobacco, forest floor and potpourri spices on the sexy, very complex nose. Dense, sweet, suave and deep, with insidious intensity to the multilayered flavors of blueberry, tobacco leaf and loam. Wonderfully silky and sweet Chianti, finishing with fine-grained tannins and lingering ripe red cherry and spice flavors. The 2009 vintage doesn't get any better than this. An outstanding wine, and everything a Chianti ought to be.
According to James Suckling: A solid wine with deep platform of dried berries and spices. Full and rich with firm tannins and a chocolate, berry and hazelnut aftertaste. Impressive. This is a longtime favorite. Rated 90+
