The nose showed dark red fruits with black cherry, blackberry and citrus, followed by hints of undergrowth and herbs. On the palate, I found ripe red berries, beautiful inner floral and herbal notes with a regal structure. The lasting finish was focused, giving a slow-motion playback of its performance on the palate.

The nose showed animal musk and dusty black cherry. On the palate, I found vibrant strawberry fruit, spice and earthy minerals. This wine is well structured and has great balance. It was a pleasure to drink.

I still have a few of these in the cellar and they have been improving over the years. Unfortunately, the '88s and '90s are all gone. What fond memories!

A pure expression of Sangiovese, the 2009 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Grigio shows the inner warmth and richness that is characteristic of the Castelnuovo Berardenga subzone of the famous Tuscan appellation. Balsam herbs and eucalyptus oil appear at first and slowly give way to black fruit, cherry cola, violet and Spanish cedar. It shows an extremely polished feel in the mouth. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2028. - Robert Parker 93+ Points Fresh and vivid, evoking pure cherry, strawberry, tobacco and underbrush notes. There are stiff tannins, but this finds balance in the end. Best from 2015 through 2022. 20,000 cases made. -BS

Nebst der Eleganz eines typischen Chianti Classico, zeichnet sich dieser Rotwein duch die reifen Fruchtaromen und seine würzigen Komponenten aus. Ausbau zu 80% in Slavonischen Holzfässern für 24 Monate, zu 20% in französischen Barriques
