Bibbiano Chianti Classico Riserva 2019
"Savory and tarry cranberries and strawberries here, followed with some cured meat and blood orange. This is a juicy and delicious Chianti Classico Riserva with tangy savoriness that’s fully woven into the wine. Medium-bodied with firm yet silky and savory tannins. Quite effortless. Beautiful now." James Suckling 93 points Drink 2023-29
