3.5 stars "Deep color, aromatic nose with smoky and cherry aromas. Bold attack on the palate and slightly tannic on the finish, becoming much smoother after some decanting time."

90 points "The stunning 1999 Chianti Classico Riserva is a dense ruby-colored effort that could easily pass for a grand cru red Burgundy. It boasts sweet, expansive, floral, black cherry, and kirsch liqueur-like aromas. As it sits in the glass, hints of leather and underbrush emerge from this medium to full-bodied, expansive, flavorful Chianti. Consume it over the next 5-7 years." Best 2003-2008
