Vinous

The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva is powerful and deep in the glass. Black cherry, plum, mocha, new oak, spice and leather are all amped up. Dark, layered and supple, the 2016 has plenty to recommend it. The Riserva deftly balances fruit intensity with the aromatic depth and freshness of 2016. The French oak could be a bit better integrated, but otherwise this is a fine showing.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The Casaloste 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva is a rich and darkly saturated expression with a balanced load of dark fruit, tilled earth, leather and lightly toasted spice. This wine boasts a very rich, soft and succulent quality with sweet plum and blackberry on the close. The tannins are softly rounded and chewy. Pair it with a sugo di fegatini, or a Tuscan chicken liver tomato sauce, served over pasta or just on its own. Some 6,600 bottles were made.
