WineDiva's Review

Brooding, extracted, classic. This Riserva is made by Santa Margherita from Sangiovese and a splash of Canaiolo and was aged about 2 years in new French oak barrels.
Wild red berry and cherry aromas are woven with charred licorice branch, tobacco, brown spices, toasted oak and there are some pretty floral undertones. It has an attractive weight and is definitely more brooding and extracted than many of the others I've tasted recently. It has a charred sort of bitterness in the form of spice and cocoa. It's firm and has classic Chianti tannins and a tobacco flavoured finish.
