TENUTA LA NOVELLA Chianti Classico Riserva 2010

The wines from Tenuta la Novella have impressed me since the first time I tasted them a few years back and they have not disappointed since. With the legandary Bordeaux consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt working closely with the property these wines are showing constant improvement in quality with each vintage. The 2010 Riserva is a modern style Chianti Classico, dark in color with intense aromas of blackBerries and dark cherries, layered with exotic spices, fresh violets, licorice, minerals and some sandalwood notes. This full-bodied, supple Chianti is notable for its depth, focus and balance. It continues to deliver layers of flavors all the way through the long, polished finish. Overall, a fantastic effort that will only continue to improve with age. (Best 2016-2027) - February, 2015 (JD)
