Alcohol/vol 14%
Great color. A shiny, very-intense purple. Broad variety of aromas with hints of mint blended with spices then prune and berries. Creamy on the palate with a solid body and soft, pleasant, well-distributed tannins. The acidity is well-balanced with the alcoholic component.

Rated 96 by James Suckling This is a very subtly played Chianti Classico Riserva that opens to reveal brambleberries, dried orange peel, vanilla, tobacco, cedar, spice box and grilled meats. Very structured on the palate with loads of firm tannins, coated with generous fruit and refreshened by cutting acidity. Drink in 2023.

This is racy, taut and intense, with cherry, black currant and blueberry flavors fused to a severe structure. Shows mineral and black pepper details as this rides out the refreshing finish. Give this some time. Best from 2022 through 2045.

The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva Berardo exhibits a soft and delicate personality that is slightly atypical for this warm and sunny vintage and for the Castelnuovo Berardenga subzone that is known for more robust interpretations. Instead, this wine exhibits fine silkiness with aromas of wild berry, spice, crushed stone and even a touch of grilled herb or green olive. There is a drying note on the bouquet that recalls the crushed rocks and limestone clay soils of Chianti Classico.
