Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Chianti Classico is an elegantly crafted wine with impeccably balanced tones of red cherry, spice, mild coffee and leather that play off each other in an expertly choreographed dance. It's a young, firm wine that shows great energy. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.

Wine EnthusiastSangiovese from the Castelnuovo Berardenga area of Chianti Classico benefits from slightly warmer temperatures on average. That extra heat shapes a full and generous quality of fruit that is ripe with blackberry, prune and plum. There's a touch of earthy clay and tobacco at the back.
