Chianti Classico Riserva

External Review by Palm Bay International:

Chianti Classico 2006 - 90 points, Wine Enthusiast/ This Riserva expression of Chianti Classico reveals ripe richness and plush layers of blackberry, cherry, spice, leather and tobacco. Smooth tannins and a compact texture would match white meat or pork.

The Castle of Verrazzano is located on a hilltop in the Chianti Classico area, the first grape growing and wine producing area in the world to be determined by an official proclamation, made by the grand Duke Cosimo III de' Medici in 1716. Its high position, over the Greve valley, was once of strategic-military importance; today it is possible to easily overlook the vineyards which fan out across the slopes to the edges of the wood further down the valley. The castle was an etruscan then a roman settlement before becoming the property of the Verrazzano family in the VIIth century. Read less

Chianti Classico Famiglia Zingarelli Riserva 2008 - 92 points, JamesSuckling.com/ Lots of rich and ripe fruit here, with fresh plum that turns to prune with chocolate undertones. Full and velvety.

Chianti Classico Riserva 2005 - 89 Points, Wine Enthusiast/ Ripe fruit flavors and aromas of black cherry, plum, Indian spice, cola and black tea chracterize this Riserva. The wine has good structure and tight tannins and offers impressive fruit intensity in the mouth. Sergio Zingarelli's sunny personality seems to shine bright in this luminous wine from his storied Chianti Classico estate.
