JS 90 Vinous 90 Pts - According to James Suckling - "This is a Chianti Classico with a wonderful depth of fruit plus hints of vanilla and chocolate. Full and velvety, round tannins and long caressing finish. Really delicious now."
According to Antonio Galloni - "Black cherries, smoke, scorched earth, tobacco and game are some of the many notes that emerge from the 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva. Deep and inky to the core, the 2010 is endowed with superb depth and plenty of concentration. There isn't a whole lot of subtlety here; the 2010 is a wine built on power."
According to International Wine Cellar - "Ruby-red. Redcurrant, flint, underbrush and nutty oak on the nose. Large-scaled and powerful but youthfully reticent and almost painfully tannic, showing more depth of texture today than sweet fruit. Very aggressive and oaky on the finish...."
Winemakers Notes - "Intense ruby red with glints of garnet. Full and well expressed. Dry, austere with elegant tannins."
