Editorial Reviews for Tenuta di Nozzole Chianti Classico Riserva
There’s a touch of VA on the nose here adding lift to the rich nose that combines elements of leather, tar, prosciutto and barnyard with jammy, candied cherry fruit tones. This has wonderful structure with great acids and fine tannins forming a very harmonious mouthfeel that supports the fresh, dark fruit on the mid-palate. While turning a bit leathery on the finish this has irresistible black cherry and mineral notes presented with wonderful purity. 91pts
The nose showed wild red berries and a hint of wood. On the palate, it was balanced and juicy with red fruits and herbs. The finish showed some aggressive tannin that should integrate nicely over the course of the next year.
The nose showed red and black berries, yet was savory as well with cured meats and hard Italian cheeses. On the palate, I found a saturating yet juicy amount of dark red fruit. The finish was long and palate coating.
2007 Tenuta di Nozzole Chianti Classico Riserva La Forra (Italy, Tuscany, Chianti, Chianti Classico) 9/14/2011 Eric Guido 91 The nose showed red and black berries, yet was savory as well with cured meats and hard Italian cheeses. On the palate, I found a saturating yet juicy amount of dark red fruit. The finish was long and palate coating.
Bright red sour cherry fruit with dark tea and currants some dried earth components. Lovely palate nice berry fruit nice acidity. Very solid
Fruity. Dry aftertaste.
Leathery with a bit of latex on the nose. Deep cherry flavors. A little bit of tannin is balanced with good acidity, letting this keep it's wet juicyness. Perfect with a nice Italian meal (I drank it with polenta + mushrooms and filet mignon and a chicken/spinach ravioli in marscarpone cream sauce).
This chianti pours deep garnet red, has an earthy nose, and an extremely wide flavor range that balances fruit and mineral tastes to make a very interesting wine. It dosn't have a particularly long finish and benefits on the front end from decanting and giving it some breathing time. Fairly priced and enjoyable to drink.

Winemaker Notes - This wine shows crisp, ripe red berry and cherry fruit flavors and aromas sustained by a fresh, acidic note offset by classic Sangiovese notes of earth, mushrooms and leather, with an elegant tannic backbone.
The 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva Nozzole is a dark wine loaded with super-ripe fruit, smoke, mocha, tar and licorice. This is a pretty extroverted, flashy style for the year, but it works. The tannins are firm, yet beautifully integrated, especially on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018. This is fresh and elegant, mixing cherry and berry flavors with earth and iron notes. Structured, just slightly dry on the finish. Drink now through 2015. 15,000 cases imported. -BS
Ripe, refined cherry and red berry fruit underscored by distinct impressions of mushrooms, leather and anise lead into this wine's elegantly textured palate, set in a structure of finely tuned tannins and fresh acidity.
Good medium red. Nuanced, pretty nose of red fruits, violet and mint. Supple red cherry and red berry flavors are framed by fairly soft tannins, with a note of violet perking up the persistent finish. Well done. The 2007 Chianti Classico Riserva comes across as beautifully opulent and soft in its dark fruit, leather, licorice and spices. This voluptuous dark Chianti captures the essence of the important Tuscan vintage in its depth and long, caressing finish. Mint and flowers add higher-toned notes on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2017. Features slightly stewed fruit and plum on the nose. Full-bodied, with lots of fruit and spices that turn to an aftertaste evoking fruit pie. A jammy Chianti Classico, which like this for its opulence, though its a little atypical. Drink now. 8,335 cases made. -JS ** Only 14 in Stock **
W&S 93pts. - WS 90pts. - WE 90pts. - Winemaker Notes - The Nozzole estate is situated in a ruggedly beautiful valley in the very heart of the Chianti Classico zone, roughly halfway between Florence and Siena, just to the north of the village of Greve in Chianti. Of its 1,000 acres, approximately one third are planted in vineyards situated in numerous hillside microclimates supporting Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Colorino vines and small plots of white Malvasia del Chianti and Trebbiano Toscano. The La Forra parcel is the estate's finest vineyard, situated on a southerly exposed slope at an altitude of 900 feet. Wine from this vineyard is produced as a single-vineyard Chianti only in exceptional vintages. Nozzole Chianti Classico Riserva La Forra is a wine of impressive concentration and depth, with an intense, aromatic fragrance of black fruit, leather and woodsy notes. On the palate, rich, ripe fruit is set in a firm tannic structure which is balanced, mellow and integrated...
