Expert Reviews

The 2010 Chianti Classico is an expressive and intense Sangiovese with showy aromas of bold cherry fruit and elaborate spice. What I liked most about the wine is the balanced acidity that keeps the palate clean and refreshed, taking away any residual heaviness. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020. Rating 88 - Drink 2013 - 2020 - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate (AUG/2013)
