Antonio Galloni per Vinous ha attribuito 92+ punti a Pagliarese 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva: “The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva is another terrific wine from Pagliarese. Juicy dark cherry, plum, licorice, menthol and sage give the Riserva lovely darkness and flavor intensity. The tannins need a bit of bottle age to soften, but there is plenty to like and look forward to here, most notably the wine’s real sense of vibrancy. Dollops of Canaiolo add character to this decidedly powerful, old-school Riserva from Pagliarese, a Fèlsina sister estate.
Sono invece 89 i punti assegnati da Galloni a Pagliarese 2017 Chianti Classico, così presentato: “The 2017 Chianti Classico is a very pretty, old-school leaning wine loaded with all the class that has been such a signature at this reborn property over the last few years. Iron, sweet red cherry, tobacco, cedar, dried flowers, mint and cedar add layers of nuance throughout. This bold, hearty Chianti Classico will be especially fine at the dinner table.”.
