Wine Spectator 90 points - Black cherry and blackberry flavors are framed by vanilla and toast in this polished red, whose finish is fresh and long, though the tannins still need time to integrate. Best from 2015 through 2024. 2,150 cases made.-BS  (Oct 31 2013)

Vinous 89 points - The estate’s 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva Bellezza (100% Sangiovese) is darker and richer than the straight Riserva, but not materially better or more complex in my view. If anything, the greater use of French oak is a bit distracting, given that the dark red, plummy fruit is so attractive in this vintage. Hints of mocha and sweet spices add texture on the close.  (Aug 2013)

Wine maker notes
The same attention and care which is given to the grape on the vine continues in the cellar in the processes of pressing and removing the grapes from the stalks, which means every day during the alcoholic fermentation and the subsequent malolactic fermentation, which takes place in new barriques of French oak. The wine is aged, therefore, for a period of 14/16 months in small capacity barrels (225 litres) and barriques (225 litres) of French oak of first passage, which bestow softness on the wine and emphasise the typical tang of this grape. Long refinement in the bottle completes the ageing and emphasises the tertiary fragrances.

Food pairing
Ideal for dishes with white truffles, furred and feathered game, well cooked, fully seasoned Pecorino cheeses.

Producer
The fully revitalised castle vineyards the oldest dates from 1996 snake through the clay and limestone rock-filled soil of the estate. It is the alliance between the land and the vine that makes the difference: each vine has its own characteristics, its own requirements and it own ways of responding, and it is very important to understand them, and know how to anticipate them. With Sangiovese, the vine that covers the greater part of the castle vineyards, this wealth of experience is indispensable! The analysis of the earth, the choice of the rootstocks and the selection of the clones, as well the pruning back and the careful, skilful handling of the vine throughout its productive cycle, makes it possible to obtain a healthy grape with uniform ripening: the quality of the grapes is at the heart of a good wine.
