The 2007 Ravazzi Chianti Riserva is medium bodied, with nice aromas of integrated cherry and cedar. Tannins are somewhere between refined and tannic (decant for 30 min) and the finish is smooth and medium. It is still quite young and should be able to cellar for 5 to 10 years. My impression: NICE, 88 pts - not much complexity. Tasted Feb/10.
