Wine Advocate 94 "Streamlined and elegant, this mid-weight red trots out notes of grilled herb and dark fruit nuances that segue to spice, tilled earth and savory tobacco, with great complexity. This 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Berardenga is still a bit closed and tight, but this beautiful wine boasts all the best qualities of this vintage. It shows elegance and power, two contrasting characteristics that only work well together in the world's most achieved expressions. The most satisfying aspect of this Riserva is the crisp acidity on the close that keeps the palate refreshed and ready for the next sip."
Vinous Media 93 "Still in barrel, the 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva is shaping up to be an absolute gem. Naturally, the 2016 is still coming together. Its aromatic intensity, definition and total sense of finesse are the signatures of a superb Chianti Classico in the making. This is another 'don't miss' wine from Flsina."~Antonio Galloni
