JS 91 WS 90 WE 90 Pts - According to James Suckling - A Chianti Classico with firm tannins and plenty of juicy fruit. Full-bodied, meaty, long and intense. Drink or hold.
According to Wine Spectator - A focused red, offering rich cherry, black currant and tobacco flavors corralled by vivid acidity and firm tannins. Still a bit tight, with fine length. Best from 2015 through 2024.
According to Wine Enthusiast - This wine opens with aromas that recall underbrush, black berries, spice and Mediterranean herbs. The concentrated palate delivers a core of black cherry flavors accented with mint, licorice and a hint black pepper alongside assertive but polished tannins. Drink or hold through 2020.
According to Wine Advocate - The 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva di Famiglia shows developed oak tones of new leather and tobacco leaf next to dark fruit and plum. The wine wraps tightly around the palate with polished tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020. 14% ABV.
