    "The 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva is one of the finest wines I have tasted from Tenuta di Capraia. Deep and pliant on the palate, with gorgeous supporting structure, the 2013 is wonderfully complete. Above all else, though, the 2013 is impeccably balanced and pedigreed to the core. I loved it." ~ Antonio Galloni

    Antonio Galloni's Vinous raves about the Tenuta di Capraia Chianti Classico Riserva, and so do we. Here's what you need to know: it's got elegantly big, bold flavors which are expertly woven together, with dark, juicy fruit, floral spices, and good, solid, Tuscan earthiness. Decant your bottle(s) two hours before drinking, and then lay out some Tuscan salumis, olives and a young Parmesan for snacking. After that, we love this beautiful Riserva red with a stuffed pork roast wrapped in prosciutto and sage. Grilled rosemary rack of lamb with grilled eggplant and zucchini is another perfect pairing. Or, get lost in a big, steaming bowl of fettucine with a rustic pork ragu. Whichever you choose, it's going to be a delicious night.

    Antonio Galloni's Vinous:  "The 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva is one of the finest wines I have tasted from Tenuta di Capraia. Deep and pliant on the palate, with gorgeous supporting structure, the 2013 is wonderfully complete. Black cherry, plum and lavender are some of the many nuances that develop. Above all else, though, the 2013 is impeccably balanced and pedigreed to the core. I loved it." Jan 2018

    Wine Spectator:  "There is an earthy depth to this red, with sanguine, iron and leather notes complementing the cherry and plum fruit. Broad and densely structured, offering a long aftertaste. Best from 2020 through 2030. 2,000 cases made." Apr 2018 (Advance)

    Winery: "Tenuta di Capraia Riserva is a deep ruby red wine. Its complex and sophisticated aroma reminds of fruits on a first step, gradually opening up and displaying spices and liquorice. On the palate it is fleshy, harmonious and full-bodied, with a long persistence."
