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)

Smooth and well rounded. Clean finish. Hits the tang behind the teeth.

Dark cherries, spices, light on its feet and an awesome pasta wine. Delicious.

Cherry, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, and oak on the nose. The palate features dark cherry, cranberry, raspberry, oak, and more spice. High acid and moderate plus tannins with a long finish.
