The 1993 Chianti Classico Riserva is another stunning wine. It boasts gorgeous depth and purity, not to mention fabulous overall balance. Sweet dark cherries, licorice, mint and spices are woven together in this fleshy, supple Riserva. The firm tannins are there, but the 1993 has more than enough fruit to stand up to the wine's structural components. Today the 1993 comes across as a slightly smaller scaled version of the 1990. This is a fabulous wine with at least another decade of fine drinking ahead of it. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.
