Wednesday, January 30, 2013 - This medium garnet wine was Vinturi-decanted and serially tasted over the ensuing 2-3 hours. The nose shows moderately intense aromas of cherry, balsamic and earth. Light-to-medium-bodied on the palate, with medium acidity, light supple tannins and well-integrated alcohol (which is listed as 13%). The flavors mirror the nose, although the dirt/earth component steps to the forefront. The middle palate is lacking and the short-to-medium finish lacks intensity. This wine was certainly "serviceable" when served with pasta Bolognese, but in no way will it be memorable. Drink now-12/15.

Either way, enjoyed reading some of your notes. I'm in San Diego, and since wine is meant to be shared, feel free to invite me over anytime you open a nice bottle. P.S. My idea of a nice bottle isn't an 09 Banfi Chianti Classico Riserva.. just saying.
