From the heart of Tuscany, comes this beautiful Chianti Classico Riserva from one of the top names in Italian wine: Villa Cafaggio. Their elegant Chianti place them firmly among the top handful of Italian wine producers, with the best vintages of their top Riservas often approaching Brunello di Montalcino in terms of complexity and potential. In fact, their 2009 Chianti Classico Riserva was voted Italian Wine of the Year from The Wine Enthusiast! Produced only in exceptional vintages and sourced exclusively from south facing vineyards, this Chianti Classico Riserva is aged 24 months in mostly French oak, then held in bottle another 6-12 months before release. 95 Points from The Wine Spectator for $21.99, we're on Top 100 watch!
"This is superb for the silky texture and pure flavors of cherry, raspberry and rose. Elegant and linear, yet with a solid spine of tannins for support. The sweet, ripe fruit and floral accents return on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2040. 500 cases made." The Wine Spectator, 95 Points
