The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva Berardo is a pretty, open-knit wine. Sweet dark cherry, plum, lavender, spice and menthol are nicely delineated in the 2015, a Riserva that is unusually translucent for the vintage. This is an especially refreshing, mid-weight wine for the year, with a good deal of savory and earthy Sangiovese character laced throughout. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, August 2019)

Great acid and tannic structure. Like traipsing through the woods after a warm mid-summer rain. Wet eucalyptus, mulch, and lilies.
