Product Overview

94 Points - Wine Spectator
"A classy red, this is notable for the supple texture as much as the cherry, plum, loam, mineral and spice flavors. Dense, vibrant and complex, with fine balance and a long fruity, minerally aftertaste. Sangiovese and Merlot. Best from 2026 through 2045. 3,000 cases made, 875 cases imported." -BS, 2023

94 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2019 Chianti Classico Riserva is an organic blend of 80% Sangiovese and 20% Merlot. I can't say enough good things about Barbara Widmer and her winemaking efforts in this wild and forested corner of Radda in Chianti. Her wines always express clarity and focus, and this is especially clear in a mid-range product like this. This vintage offers more concentration and darkness for sure, followed by blackberry and wild plum. There is oaky cinnamon and sweet spice at the back. Some 37,000 bottles were made." -ML, 2/9/23

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"The nose on this wine is reserved, delicate and approachable. It opens with a strong presence of eucalyptus and sambuca flower followed by gunpowder, slate, brick and bright cherries. The palate is still very herbaceous, giving way to coffee grinds, chocolate and more cherries. Tannins still feel dense but not impenetrable, and acid lends crunch to the fruit." -DC, 4/1/23

90 Points - Vinous
"The 2019 Chianti Classico Riserva is a heady, boisterous wine. Super-ripe dark cherry, spice, blood orange, leather and sweet French oak give the 2019 its racy personality. This is an especially bold style that works quite well." -AG, Jun/2022
