Wine Spectator 90 points - A fruity, delicious red with sliced-plum and lemon-rind character. Full body with light tannins and a flavorful finish. I like the traditional, honest character here. Drink now.
Monsanto’s 2011 Chianti Classico Riserva fleshes out beautifully in the glass. The flavors are bright, lifted and beautifully focused throughout. Sweet red berries, crushed flowers, mint and tobacco are some of the notes that inform the silky finish. The 2011 shows the texture and voluptuousness of the year, but the classic Monsanto style is still quite evident. This is a beautiful example of the vintage, and a wine that will deliver considerable pleasure for the next decade or more.
The 2011 Chianti Classico Riserva delivers toasted notes of spice and smoke that need more time to integrate. There’s a point of ripe fruit (strawberry, mostly) that peeks above those lavish oak tones. The 2010 version of this wine shows better balance, while 2011 is characterized by the hotter growing season.
Aromas and flavors of eucalyptus, wild sage and pine mingle with cherry, tobacco and earth notes in this complex, structured Chianti Classico. Built for the long haul. Drink now through 2024.B.S.

Review
"The 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva is a very pretty, centered wine. Dark cherries, plums, spices, menthol, cedar, game and tobacco are some of the notes that emerge from the glass. The 2008 is an understated Riserva that impresses for its length, focus and balance. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023." 92 Points - The Wine Advocate
