Barone Ricasoli Rocca Guicciarda Chianti Classico Riversa 2012
Medium dark ruby color. Expressive and charming nose of flowers and ripe berries. Flavors of cherries and strawberries with some spices and oak undertones. Silky on the palate and just so good that you just want to have a sip after the other. Really tasty while showing some complexity. Very good+ (89)

Tasted along a Fontodi Chianti Classico 2012 – no winner, but liked both of them!
