Chianti Classico Riserva Castello di Volpaia 2017 (750ML)
92 Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parkers' Wine Advocate: "If you have a platter of fatty porchetta and are looking for a worthy Tuscan wine for that party, look no further. Packaged in a black label, the Volpaia 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva Castello di Volpaia (made with organic fruit) does a great job of showing purity and freshness in what was a challenging vintage for sure. This Riserva reveals delineated tones of cherry and dark berry with crushed limestone, blue flowers and some of the wild herbs and bramble that I often recognize in wines from this corner of Tuscany. I happily recommend it to all Sangiovese enthusiasts."
93 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva Castello di Volpaia is an immensely rewarding, inviting wine. Juicy and racy, with no hard edges, the Riserva captures the allure of this warm, dry year. There is plenty to like in the 2017, starting with its depth and volume, I won't be surprised if the Riserva turns out to be even better than this note suggests. Sweet red fruit, cedar and blood orange give the 2017 striking aromatic intensity and lift."
94 Points, James Suckling: "A red with plenty of ripe fruit, such as berries and cherries with some fresh-herb and lemon undertones. It's medium-to full-bodied with bright fruit and fine tannins. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold." 07/20
93 Points, Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast: [Editor's Choice] "Aromas of blue flower, spiced plum, new leather and sunbaked earth form the inviting nose on this pure Sangiovese. Made with organically farmed grapes, the smooth, savory palate doles out fleshy black cherry, baking spice and chopped mint alongside velvety tannins that give it a polished texture. Drink through 2025"
96 Poins, Luca Gardini, Gardininotes.com:"Radda in Chianti, vineyards located between 400 and 600 meters a.s.l. Organic project, Sangiovese and Merlot grapes which are manually harvested, maceration on the skins, great workmanship in winery. On the nose, blueberries and blackberries, a good balsamic trace. Juicy, fresh and crunchy on the palate with salty and deep tannins."
