    "Berardenga" Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2016

    In the dream year 2016 unsurpassably good: haunting and wonderfully clear in colour, the Chianti Classico Riserva unfolds its inviting fragrance reminiscent of ripe cherries with notes of spices. Dense and extremely juicy in taste, with a good tannin pack, full of personality and authenticity. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Noble, bright ruby red. In the nose of rich cherries, raspberry jam and sugared strawberries. On the palate balanced and with juicy tannin, spicy bouquet, harmonious in the beginning and course. Falstaff

    "This is a very cedary Chianti Classico, the wood showing prominently, but also showing beautiful dried rose petals and orange rind. Full-bodied with structured tannins and a chewy finish." James Suckling

    "Aromas of exotic spice and black plum mingle with notes of wild herb and a whiff of oak. On the tight elegant palate, firm close-grained tannins support red cherry, pomegranate, chopped mint and star anise while bright acidity lends balance. It's still youthfully austere so give it time to fully develop." Wine Enthusiast

    "The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva shows all the quality and pedigree of the year in its layered personality and overall nuance. Cedar, dried cherry, game licorice and tobacco convey the darker, gamier side of Sangiovese that is such a signature at Fèlsina. The 2016 finishes with terrific energy and bright acids that suggest it will enjoy a long life in the cellar, but readers should plan on giving it at least a few years in bottle." Vinous

    "This red offers density and focus, creating an ideal frame for the cherry, strawberry, almond, leather and earth flavors. A firm backbone of tannins lends structure and the finish persists, leaving an accent of bitter almond." Wine Spectator

    "Streamlined and elegant, this mid-weight red trots out notes of grilled herb and dark fruit nuances that segue to spice, tilled earth and savory tobacco, with great complexity. This 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Berardenga is still a bit closed and tight, but this beautiful wine boasts all the best qualities of this vintage. It shows elegance and power, two contrasting characteristics that only work well together in the world's most achieved expressions. The most satisfying aspect of this Riserva is the crisp acidity on the close that keeps the palate refreshed and ready for the next sip." Robert Parker
