92/100 - Vinous
The 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva is a bold, powerful wine. Black cherry, iron, tar, menthol, and licorice give the 2018 a super-distinctive, wild profile. There is plenty of depth and volume. In 2018 the Riserva offers a decidedly wild, gamy expression of sangiovese. Best of all, the Riserva remains a fabulous value.
