93 points and 'Editors' Choice,' Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas of crushed dark-skinned berry, violet, tilled earth and baking spice are front and center on this fragrant red. Racy and loaded with youthful energy, the savory palate features black plum, Marasca cherry and licorice framed in taut polished tannins. Bright acidity keeps it fresh and balanced. Drink through 2025. Alcohol 14%. (Nov 2020)"

92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2018 Chianti Classico is bright and racy, with tons of Radda Sangiovese character. Red berry fruit, flowers, chalk and white pepper all grace this super-expressive, translucent Chianti Classico. The 2018 is a bit airy and taut, but that is also a big part of its appeal. Readers who appreciate slightly nervous reds will adore the 2018. Drink: 2022-2038. (Sep 2020)"

91 points James Suckling: "A finely crafted red with cherry, chocolate and walnut aromas and flavors. Medium body, creamy tannins and a flavorful finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink now. (10/27/20)"
