Broad, generous and lightly oaked, with vanilla and a hint of chocolate gracing the black cherry, leather, almond and tobacco flavors. A firm grip lines the finish. Drink now through 2020. 29,200 cases made.

A pretty, open-knit wine, the 2012 CHianti Classico Riserva offers plenty of near-term appeal. Sweet red berries, flowers, spices and mint meld together effortlessly. Medium in body, the 2012 Riserva possesses good mid-palate depth and a radiant, accessible personality.

The 2012 Chianti Classico Riserva Famiglia Zingarelli is Sangiovese with small percentages of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon added to the blend. The 2012 vintage was a complicated one but the Zingarelli family sourced fruit from different sites to make this wine. They have also just completed a 35-hectare replanting effort. Dark berry fruit, spice and toasted almond give this wine a classic taste profile for Chianti Classico.
