90 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): "[$23 list] The 2008 Chianti Classico sparkles on the palate with notable brilliance in its dark red fruit. This is a beautifully balanced, harmonious Chianti that showcases the more feminine side of the appellation. Clean, mineral notes on the finish provide the freshness and verve that will make this a terrific wine for the dinner table. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2014. (Oct 2010)"
90 points Wine Spectator: "[$23 list] Floral, berry and hints of vanilla on the nose lead to a full body, with loads of fruit and silky tannins. Intense finish. Best from 2011 through 2014. (9/30/10)"
