The Chianti Classico Riserva has a deep, ruby red color, opening with lovely red fruity notes and hints of strawberries, citrus and tobacco. These same flavors extend to the fruit-filled palate, with additionally earthy and spicy notes. A classic and elegant expression of our Chianti Classico terrior, the wine is supported by firm tannins and balanced by fresh acidity with good complexity.
