Drinking very nicely. I see that the community estimated 2008 to be the end of the drinking window....not so!!! Tannins are resolved but there is a lot of nice fruit in this wine still along with balancing acidity.

(Villa Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva) Good depth of colour. Roasted fruit nose, with still evident oak. Weighty on the palate, with fresh, dazzling acidity and fine grained tannins. A sense of extract showing through on midpalate, lovely here. Medium bodied but has weight and presence. Great fruit. Good, chewy finish. A great improvement on the lacklustre 2000 vintage.
