|From Giovanni and Ambrogio Folonari, the 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva opens to ripe tones of black currant and prune. It doesnt have the great complexity of the vintage but it does offer an honest experience. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020.
Vinous / Antonio Galloni, 90 Points -
Freshly cut flowers, mint, dark red cherries and anise are some of the notes that waft from the glass in the 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva. This is one of the more weightless, gracious wines of the vintage. The style is quite soft and supple, but all the fruit is nicely supported by clean veins of mouth-watering acidity.
Wine Spectator, 89 Points:
Elegant and intense, delivering cherry, leather, bitter almond and tea flavors on a dense profile. Finishes a bit dry, but shows complexity. Drink now through 2016.
