94pts Antonio Galloni's Vinous
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 2014 Chianti Classico Riserva is absolutely gorgeous. Hints of sage, menthol, licorice, tobacco and crushed flowers add myriad shades of dimension to this articulate, striking Riserva. Deep and layered, but also light on its feet, the 2014 is positively stellar. Bright saline notes punctuate the super-expressive finish. Don't miss it. Drinking window: 2020-2039."  Feb 2019

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."
