I think the regular Chianti Classico is wonderful but this Riserva raises the bar (and makes me raise my glass again and again and again). This has body, depth and a ripeness that I wasn't expecting. Dark fruit notes mingle with herb and spicy oak flavors with a touch of anise on the finish. Drink over the next decade.

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.
