93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"In 2007, Monica Raspi closed up her veterinary clinic and decided to make wine on her family farm in Pomona. The Sangiovese for the 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva is sourced from her family's organic vineyards. The wine opens to black cherry, blackberry and plum, with some mild spice and tobacco on the finish. You can count on the 2016 vintage to deliver linearity, purity and clarity, and this wine sure falls into all three categories. The tannins are polished and silky and will appeal to all of us who love these pure Tuscan flavors. You could pair this wine with a Tuscan pasta classic or even a Fiorentina steak."

"Compact, this red isn't revealing all of its charms today. Cherry and rose aromas are confirmed on the palate, along with juniper, mineral and earth accents. Firmly built for a svelte frame, with plenty of intensity on the long finish. Best from 2022 through 2037."
"Castellina in Chianti. 100% Sangiovese.
Lustrous ruby. Ripe cherry fruit with the merest hint of fruit cake. Fantastic lift of acidity supporting ripe cherry fruit and long tannins on the palate and with salty, minerally hints on the finish. 17.5/20 points. (WS)"
