“Text book example of great value Chianti Classico. It combines aromas of black cherry, earth and sweet spice with a delicate fragrance of dried flowers and cranberry. Scintillatingly rustic on the palate, this merges energetic red fruit with a streak of garden herb. Lunchtime favourite under a Tuscan sun.”
“Fresh morello cherry on the nose with tertiary nuances of mushroom, moss and black olive. Soft and elegant in the mouth, it's full of forest fruits and savoury weight, all held in check with racy acidity and a dry textured finish.”
“Finessed aromas of raspberry and prune, faint black olives and liquorice. The palate is made of silky red fruit, but noticeably deeper and more concentrated than the Chianti Classico. Impressive sinewy structure encompasses gentle oak and fresh acidity. Lightens with strawberry earth character on the finish. Fantastic riserva with manny years ahead of it.”
“Deliciously fresh summer fruits exude from a light, perfumed nose. The palate is expressive and vibrant, carrying waves of fun along a spike edge of acidity before climaxing with notes of red currant and sweet spice.”
Barone Ricasoli is one of the great historical wine producers of Italy, with the release of their Chianti dating back to 1872. Today the Tuscan estate commands an excellent reputation for premium wines.
