"The 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva is gorgeous, especially for a vintage that was not easy. Black cherries, mint, licorice and tobacco are supported by firm yet well-integrated tannins and lively acidity, both of which should allow the wine to age gracefully for a number of years. The 2008 could still use another year or two to soften, but it is gorgeous, even today."

2010 Villa Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva

"Sangiovese with 10% Merlot, the 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva Villa Antinori opens with a two-fold delivery of espresso grits and pressed red rose that give this wine a rather unique personality. The mouthfeel is bright and well-defined with cherry and dried raspberry that do a lot to sharpen the mouthfeel of this balanced Chianti Classico Riserva."

2009 Marchese Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva

"The 2009 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Antinori (Sangiovese with 10% Cabernet) offers a different interpretation of the appellation with a deeper color and extra concentration. There’s a sweet chocolate note on the finish that is contrasted against savory tones of dark spice and tobacco."

2009 Felsina Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia

"The 2009 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia ... shows elements of both a cold year in its mid-weight structure and a warmer vintage in its radiant fruit, a combination that represents an attractive stylistic middle ground. I very much like the sense of energy and intensity here. Bright acidity and youthful tannins frame the supple fruit. It will be interesting to see whether the 2009 develops along the lines of the cooler vintage Rancias, or whether the juiciness of the fruit will ultimately prevail in the wine’s balance. Either way, the 2009 is yet another terrific Rancia from Felsina."
