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.

James Suckling: "Aromas and flavors of blue fruit, wet earth and hints of slate, following through to a medium to full body and chewy tannins. Needs to soften a little. Better after 2021." Nov 2019

Wine Spectator: "A harmonious texture and profile sets the stage for this red's focused cherry, currant and floral notes. Mineral and tobacco accents sneak in as this plays out on the long finish. Shows excellent structure too. Drink now through 2040. 1,000 cases made, 500 cases imported." Mar 2021

Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva will thrill Sangiovese lovers. Ample and expressive in the glass, with tremendous nuance, the Riserva is simply exceptional in 2016. Black cherry, plum, leather, tobacco, incense, menthol and licorice bring out the darker side of Sangiovese. I would give the tannins a few years to soften. The 2016 is very clearly a special wine in the making." Apr 2021

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."
