Ratings & Reviews



91 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A racy style whose vibrant acidity drives flavors of black cherry, black currant, iron, earth and soy. Still very firm, with the acidity acting in tandem with refined tannins. Fine length. Drink now through 2033. 4,166 cases made, 2,000 cases imported." - BS (Oct 15, 2019)

Vinous:
"Bibbiano's 2016 Chianti Classico is a soft, fruity wine to drink now and over the next 2-3 years. Although not especially complex, the 2016 will do in a pinch." - Antonio Galloni (Feb 2019)
