96 points Luca Gardini: "A perfectly dosed blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah, nose with notes of red currant, undergrowth and licorice, with closure of wild mint. It has a juicy, dense and crunchy taste, salty-sapid tannins and a very long persistence. The finish has traces of small red fruits and sensations of toasted coffee. (Oct 2023)"

93 points Falstaff Guide: "Intense, bright ruby ??red. A seductive, playful nose moves quickly in the glass - at times lots of fruit, cherry and raspberry, then emerges lots of peppery spice. It's similarly dynamic on the palate as well, starting out decidedly juicy and elegant before marzipan emerges alongside ripe tannin and a fresh acidity. A spiced, mineral finish ties it all up. (Oct 2023)"

92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2021 Chianti Classico is an absolute joy. Fragrant, silky and super-expressive, the 2021 captures all the finesse of Radda. Crushed red berry fruit, rose petal, orange peel and mint are all beautifully delineated in a vibrant, mid-weight Chianti Classico that has so much to offer. This is a fine showing. Drink: 2025-2036. (Aug 2023)"

92 points & '#5 Top Value Wines of 2023,' Wine Spectator: "A racy version, this boasts black cherry, blueberry, violet and iron flavors. A firm line of tannins works in concert with the acidity, while flashes of Mediterranean scrub peek through. Mouthwatering finish. Sangiovese and Merlot. Drink now through 2032. (10/31/23)"

Producer notes: "90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot. The Chianti Classico has a vivid ruby color and a strong nose of fresh red fruit with hints of cherry. This is a well-structured wine with a fruity finish. Alcohol 13.5%."
