Professional Wine Reviews for Castell'in Villa Chianti Classico Riserva 1971

Rated 93 by Wine Advocate
The 1971 Chianti Classico Riserva is very pretty. Sweet dried cherries, earthiness, flowers, mint and tobacco are some of the nuances that are woven together in this lovely, delicate Chianti Classico. The 1971 is fully mature in its aromas and flavors, but there is enough Sangiovese acidity to allow it to drink well for at least another handful of years. Hints of autumn leaves and crushed flowers linger on the Pinot-like finish. This is a great showing from the first Riserva ever made at Castell-in Villa. It is a gorgeous wine. The 1971 is the only wine made from the original vineyard. As was the custom at the time, the wine was bottled in more than one lot. The 1971 also includes white grapes, which would be eliminated by 1977. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021.
