Antonio Galloni (Vinous ) awarded Pagliarese 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva with a score of 93 points: “The 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva is another gorgeous old-school wine from Pagliarese. Black cherry, cloves, licorice, leather and woodsmoke give the 2018 its distinctive, somber feel. This dense, super-expressive Riserva certainly has tons of character. Tasting the 2018 is like stepping back in time thirty years”.
