"A beam of intense cherry shines through this densely structured red, keeping it defined and energetic. Iron, earth and tobacco flavors add depth as this stays long, with mouthcoating tannins on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2045."

"The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva is a round, intense and plummy expression with a pretty bouquet of intense berry fruit. The wine is beautifully contoured and rich, with background notes of spice and sweet tobacco that do the trick. It's a solid choice for a hearty meatloaf."

"One is immediately engaged, as by a flickering fire, by this wine’s tones of ruby and orange. The aromas and flavors are also warm, reminding me of getting into a car with leather upholstery on a hot day. Sangiovese is, unmistakably, on top form here. There is a playful sweet and savory note on the palate, a sea saltiness and a certain weightiness that is revived by pert sour-cherry fruit. A handsome Riserva from a super vintage."
