Chianti Classico Riserva 2012 - 90 Points, Wine Enthusiast/ A blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo, this opens with scents that suggest dark berry, sunbaked earth and cooking spice. The medium-bodied palate offers mature Marasca cherry, raspberry, toast and a sprinkling of clove alongside dusty tannins.

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.

Riserva Chianti Classico 2011 - 93 Points, Wine Enthusiast/ This full bodied blend of Sangiovese and 5% Canaiolo opens with heady scents of iris, violet, dark berry and a note of pipe tobacco. The firm, savory palate doles out ripe black cherry, licorice, ground black pepper and clove while assertive but well-integrated tannins prove support. Drink 2016-2021.

Chianti Classico Riserva 2008 - 90 points, Wine Enthusiast/ Sangiovese is enhanced with tiny percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to create a fresh, balanced wine, with aromas of red fruit and savory spice. The mouthfeel is soft and rich with good structure and fullness.
