This is exactly what I want from Chianti Classico. Deep but not opaque red. Fresh nose with red fruit and hints of leather. Medium/full bodied palate with plenty of fruit, some depth, minerals, leather, tangy Tuscan acidity, fine aromatic overlay and firmly supported quite long finish. Has not yet acquired the extra graciousness and secondary complexity of V.del Sorbo '01 opened a few days ago but very good.
