Nozzole Chianti Classico Riserva shows the distinctive Sangiovese fragrance of dark berries offset by pronounced woodsy notes of leather and earth. These are confirmed on the palate in a full, mellow texture and firm structure underscored by a clean acidic balance. The ripe fruit flavors carry into the aftertaste, with elegant nuances of smoke and mushrooms, ending in a long, full finish promising excellent longevity.

Tasting notes
This wine shows crisp, ripe red berry and cherry fruit flavors and aromas sustained by a fresh, acidic note offset by classic Sangiovese notes of earth, mushrooms and leather, with an elegant tannic backbone.

93 Pts, James Suckling
An elegant and fruity Chianti Classico with strawberry, sliced orange, and wet earth character. Full body, fine tannins and a juicy finish. Creamy texture. The real deal in Chianti Classico Reserve.

90 Pts, Wine Enthusiast
Aromas of scorched earth, black cooking spice and ripe berry lead the nose. The medium-bodied, easy-drinking palate doles out fleshy black cherry, ripe raspberry, licorice and ground pepper alongside polished tannins.

Wine maker notes
2012. Crisp, ripe, red berry and cherry aromas and flavors and earthy undernotes are shaped by vibrant, fresh acidity and a backbone of firm yet elegant tannins.
