Lesley Quinn Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Chianti Classico in general are great wines to explore. This Riserva has notes of cherries fresh off the tree, with a hint of tobacco coming in to spice things up. This 2009 Riserva could benefit from another year or 2 in the bottle as it is still settling down. I tried the 2008 and it was much more balanced. Chianti demands food to be consumed with it, and is fantastic with spicy smoky Italian Chorizo.
