    Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2016

    Attractive riserva with classic aromas of sour cherries, dark forest fruits and enigmatic liquorice. Elegant fruit and delicate structure on the palate, compact, well integrated tannins and an impressively long finish. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Dark glowing ruby red. Delicately spicy nose is underlain by a subtle wood tone, ripe cherry and rich forest berries. On the palate very juicy with well integrated acidity, shows elegant cherry fruit, harmonious in approach and course." Falstaff

    "This is a very spicy Chianti Classico Riserva that shows toasty oak, dark chocolate, coffee beans and a backdrop of plum paste and Christmas pudding. Full-bodied and decadent on the palate with ripe and round tannins and a structured finish. Drink from 2023." James Suckling

    "The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva is bold, powerful and explosive, with superb depth and tons of intensity. The addition of 20% Merlot in the blend and copious new French oak give the Riserva a decidedly modern, opulent feel, and yet all the elements are impeccably balanced throughout. This is Brancaia at their best." Vinous

    "The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva is a beautiful wine that does an excellent job of stringing together the many varied components of what makes a great Chianti Classico and puts them all together in a single bottle. The wine is balanced and intense with a long bouquet that starts off with black primary fruit and then trails off into a continuum of spice, leather, tar and tilled earth. There are many levels to consider here. The mouthfeel is equal parts structured, fresh and succulent, and these three factors fit together with precision. This is a terrific wine and one that I will readily drink with a grilled veal steak with my favorite roasted potatoes." Robert Parker

    Ein typischer Riserva, der sich sofort im Glas entfaltet. Macht Freude, ein toller Wein.
