"The 2011 Chianti Classico Riserva Cultus Boni is rich, deep and resonant in the glass, with lovely textural breadth and terrific balance. Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and tobacco meld into the expressive, pliant finish. This gorgeous, open-knit 2011 should continue to drink well for the better part of the next decade."

Fruit comes from south/southwest facing vineyards sitting at 260-370m elevation between 10-35 years old with clay and limestone rock soils. The hand-picked, organically grown grapes are fermented with indigenous yeasts and cap managed with punchdowns. Maceration on the skins occurs for 3 to 5 weeks depending on the variety. Aging takes place for 24 months in French oak barriques and casks of various sizes. (9500 bts)
