JS 92 WS 91 AG 90 Pts - According to James Suckling - Hint of steel, soy beans and red pepper spices with ripe red fruits on the nose. A layer of dark chocolate with espresso. Soft tannins with good complexity. Drink now or hold.
According to Wine Spectator - Round and supple, with cherry and strawberry flavors accented by licorice, tar and spice notes. Harmonious and fresh, presenting a lingering aftertaste of fruit and spice. Drink now through 2020.
According to Antonio Galloni - The 2011 Chianti Classico Riserva races across the palate with sweet red cherry, plum, spice, mint and mocha. Pliant, generous and resonant on the palate, the 2011 offers lovely immediacy and plenty of intensity in a style best enjoyed over the near term. 13.5% ABV.
