The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Castello di Volpaia is a dark, powerful wine. Black cherry, smoke, licorice, incense, mocha menthol, lavender and leather infuse this virile, brooding Riserva with tons of character. In this tasting, the Riserva stands out for its depth and weighty substance. This is a decidedly virile wine from Volpaia. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, August 2019)

No where near the 97 points given by WS. Still a very nice chianti but i preferred the 2015. This one had a bit too much tartaric acid to my liking.

I’m not normally a fan of Chianti but I really liked this one. Notes of Cedar and fruit with a very dry finish

V16. Pretty good. Dusty, licorice nose. Rich cherry and black cherry fruit. Bold, acidic green peppercorn finish. Balanced. Nice pasta and grill wine.
