89 points "This meaty, earthy red offers loads of Sangioveto character. Cherry, tobacco and underbrush flavors are at the core. Balanced and juicy, with a finish ofcherry, tobacco and macchia. Best from 2013 through 2029. 800 cases made. –BS" Best 2013-2029

94 points "The single-vineyard 2009 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Poggiale is huge. Black fruit, smoke and licorice are some of the notes that burst from the glass in this extroverted wine. The Poggiale is a bit juicier and richer than the straight Riserva, but the two wines are as differentiated as they often are. Still, it is impossible not to admire the sheer balance and harmony of what is in the glass. The Poggiale is 90% Sangioveto, 5% Caniaolo and 5% Ciliegiolo, aged in French oak barrels, 10% new. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029. "
