"Interesting aromas of ripe fruit, mineral and tobacco. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and an excellent concentration of fruit. Opulent fruit and vanilla bean come out on the finish. Best from 2010 through 2014. -JS" 91 Points - Wine Spectator
"Livernano's 2006 Chianti Classico is yet another beautiful wine from this fabulous Tuscan vintage. The estate interprets their Chianti Classico as 80% Sangiovese and 20% Merlot. There is notable detail to be found in the wild berries, flowers, spices, leather and licorice. Fine tannins support the fruit through to the elegant finish, where scents of French oak linger on the close. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2016." 90 Points - Antonio Galloni - Wine Advocate
"Livernano has emerged as one of the premier operating estates in the Chianti region, producing multiple award-winning, highly-rated wines. This traditional-style Chianti Classico offering is a blend of 80% Sangiovese and 20% Merlot. It possesses all of the lively aromatics, complexity and rich fruit of Livernano's Riserva version, but is crafted to enjoy right now. Bright ruby-red in color. Vibrant aromas of black cherry, violets and earthiness. On the palate, the wine exhibits beautiful structure and well-integrated tannins. Perfect for pastas with tomato sauce, bean stews and grilled pork or beef." -Importer
"Livernano is a truly ancient place. It was first inhabited by Etruscans, whose culture reached its high-point in Tuscany over 2500 years ago, around 500BC. The hamlet was later occupied by the Romans, who gave it its name. Long after the cessation of Roman rule, Livernano served as a fortified border post during the interminable wars of the two great mediaeval city states in Tuscany, Siena and Florence."
