2014 is a classic cool year in Chianti Classico, with fresh fruits and a driving acidity throughout the length of the wine. The nose is expressive dominated by crushed lavender and roses with earthy tones of cypress. The firm tannin structure is driven by powerful and rich fruit flavors of black cherry, ripe figs and tart currants. Bright acidity carries the finish of white pepper, lime stone minerality and orange peel. A great food wine with aging potential. Food Pairings: Steak Florentine, Osso Buco, Chicken Cacciatore Serve: Decant one hour before enjoying with family, friends and food.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chianti Classico Riserva is a dark and enriched expression of Sangiovese (and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon) with above average concentration and extraction. This is a meaty and dark red wine with a powerful load of dark fruit and ripe blackberry with spice, leather and moist terracotta on the close. The finish is soft, creamy and long lasting. I would never have pegged this wine as being from the more difficult 2014 vintage in a blind tasting. You get excellent value here.

Wine EnthusiastThis tight red offers aromas of toasted oak, vanilla and black plum while the dense palate offers prune, dark chocolate and licorice. It's somewhat austere, with taut tannins.
