92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2011 Chianti Classico Riserva is a wine of enormous depth and personality. It shows an immediate rush of berry aromas with grilled herb and tilled earth. It does a great job of presenting the varietal characteristics of Sangiovese in a pure and unadulterated manner. You can feel a touch of fruit ripeness that is common in most of the wines of 2011, but the mouthfeel is polished and direct."

"A fascinating combination of ripe fruit, fresh bark and mushrooms. Soya too. Full body, round tannins and a tangy and juicy acidity at the finish. So much going on. Drink or hold."

"Notes of cherry and strawberry show restraint in this elegant, taut red, with savory, mineral accents emerging as this develops. The finish finds an equilibrium and all the elements are there, but this will need time to develop. Best from 2017 through 2027."
