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.
Casale dello Sparviero Chianti Classico Riserva 2009, Tuscany, Italy: Vibrant and energetic and full-bodied with enticing dark cherry notes, spice and a mouth-watering zing. Terrific for dishes with some acidity. Good value for the price. Drink: 2012-2016. 317313 14% XD 750 mL $18.95 Score: 89/100. January 3, 2013 Perfect Pasta and Tomato Sauce Wine Full Review
