Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Chianti Classico Riserva shows moderate intensity with dark fruit flavors that are easy and one-dimensional. The bouquet is less impressive than the palate, where ultimately you find more personality and grit. Despite the thicker texture, the mouthfeel shows sharp tones of white cherry and cranberry that add some sourness and bitterness. The wine is made with 95% Sangiovese and 5% Merlot.
