99 points Luca Gardini: "Sophisticated, elegant and charming, an ode to greatness. On the nose, small red fruits, especially raspberry, hints of laurel, iodized nuances ending on notes of eucalyptus. The mouth reveals its juiciness, density and crunchiness. Iodized tannins, very long persistence. Small red fruits notes in the aftertaste."

93 points Michaela Morris (Decanter): "Produced since 1967, Volpaia’s Riserva is a selection of bunches from throughout the estate’s 43 hectares in the township of Radda. Due to the slow start in 2018, harvest began a few days later than average, taking place during the first two weeks of October. With purity and precision, strawberry, tobacco, vanilla and forest earth emerge from the glass. This is well-proportioned and balanced in ripeness with a core of concentrated red cherry. Fresh acidity props it up and smooth, rounded tannins frame the whole. Drinking Window: 2022-2029. (Mar 2021)"

Importer notes: "The Chianti Classico Riserva has a ruby-red hue with a trace of garnet. The nose is elegant, displaying hints of spice and fruit. This is a well-structured wine with smooth tannins and a long finish. Alcohol 14.5%."
