|2009: 89 Points - Antonio Galloni, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chianti Classico is a typical wine from this part of the Chianti Classico zone. Sweet red cherries meld into hints of tobacco, cedar, anise and leather. The 2009 impresses for its persistence and personality. It needs some time to open up, but is a pretty wine that will find many admirers among those who favor traditionally made wines. The Chianti Classico is 90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019."
