"This bright red features cherry, raspberry, floral and spice aromas and flavors allied to a silky texture. Iron, sanguine and toasty accents add complexity. Firm and built to age, with a terrific finish. Best from 2022 through 2040. 1,250 cases made, 170 cases imported. -BS" (WA)

"The 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Poggio Rosso is a powerful, bold wine that captures all the natural intensity of Castelnuovo Berardenga. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, espresso, lavender and French oak are all amped up. Exuberant and generous in the glass, with superb richness, the 2016 has so much to offer. The style is extroverted - there is no doubting that - but all the elements are impeccably balanced." (VM)

"A beautiful, soft-textured Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, showing currant, berry and black-cherry aromas with some floral and lavender undertones. It’s full-bodied, yet balanced and refined. Super quality. Drink or hold." (JS)

"Aromas of camphor, French oak and blue flower lead the nose. The dense, medium-bodied palate offers oak-driven sensations of coconut, vanilla and espresso alongside ripe plum. Fine-grained tannins provide support. Drink through 2024. -Kerin O’Keefe" (WE)
