Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG
Sangiovese based blend

In Tuscany, it’s all about who you know, and our expert is very well-connected.

When a renowned family estate in Chianti Classico (home to the original and very best Chianti vineyards) needed to make room in their cellar, our man on the ground was their first call. They gave him a friends-only price on the last barrel (“Ultima Botte”) of this luxurious 2010 Riserva … so long as we didn’t reveal their name, because their regular customers pay much more than you.

After six months in French barrels and a further six-plus years in bottle, this complex Riserva brims with classic flavors of Morello cherry, spiced plum and subtle oak notes – it’s a gorgeous taste of Chianti Classico’s 2010 vintage, which top critic Antonio Galloni calls “a great vintage ... perhaps one of the greatest.” Which means now is the time to pounce – especially at this price!
