Blackberry, black cherry, dried floral notes (lavender, violet). It's very nice, though I should've decanted and I didn't drink with a proper large glass so I feel like I missed out on quite a bit. Seemed a little tight, but probably my circumstances and not a true reflection of the wine. Medium plus dry finish. 88 pts.
Excellent Chianti, drinking well now. It still benefited from decanting, but with the air time it rounded out into a very smooth profile that combined all the key elements -- tannin, cherry, acidity -- to perfection.
