Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Coltassala is a tame and polished wine that shows an elegant and streamlined disposition. The wine glides cleanly over the palate with bright berry tones followed by wet earth, pressed rose and balsam herb. You get a good sense of the quality of Sangiovese (blended with 5% Mammolo) produced in this vintage. The fruit delivers balanced acidity and great depth. Only 12,000 bottles were produced.
