Wine SpectatorDeep plum and black cherry flavors are shrouded by toasty oak, along with leather and leafy underbrush notes. Hefty tannins offer support, but the weight is offset by sweet fruit and a lengthy aftertaste. Drink now through 2024.

Wine AdvocateShowing more depth and concentration, the 2012 Chianti Classico Riserva represents a solid effort by Carpineto to reach for a more elaborate and sophisticated winemaking style. The wine presents thick density and heavy aromas of black fruit and dried cherry. Aged for 12 months in oak barrels of various sizes, the wine shows evident toast and oak spice. There is a spot of bitterness on the close that likely reflects the ripe fruit obtained in the warm 2012 vintage.
