Smoky blackberry, rosemary and tar flavors predominate in this burly red, with dense, assertive tannins. This could use a little more generosity midpalate to buffer the tannins, yet persists on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2037. 16,000 cases made, 7,200 cases imported.
The 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva has a generous side with ripe and plump fruit, but it also shows an elongated and linear side that drives a medium-long finish. It sits at an interesting juncture in which the primary fruit is beginning to show some of the extra depth that comes with age. This is a generous production of 200,000 bottles.
