James Suckling ReviewRated 93There are mushrooms on the nose of this Chianti Classico, but these soon give way to subtle, deep aromas of blackberry crumble with hints of mint and ivy. It soon fills up the mouth with beautifully dense fruit and fine tannins, nutty, woody undertones and long finish. Gorgeous now, but better in 2016.Wine Advocate ReviewRated 91The 2012 Chianti Classico Berardenga (100% Sangiovese aged in medium-sized barrel) opens to pretty color saturation and richness. The bouquet is immediately redolent of Sangiovese-driven aromas of red cherry, white chalk and grilled herbs. The earthy component is especially attractive. This Chianti Classico will appeal to those who like a genuine and stripped-down red wine from sun-drenched Tuscany.Wine Tasting NotesDeep, attractive ruby red color. Elegantly fruity nose, with marked scents of wild red berries foregrounding nuances of mixed spices. The palate, too, shows excellent fruit supported by judicious tannins. Lengthy finish.
