Brilliant ruby red that really grabs the light. Black pepper, light vanilla, and red fruits on the nose. This is a delicious wine with a lovely balance of acids and tannins. Black pepper, red fruits, notable vanilla, a bit of tar-like coffee, the latter note which is especially notable in the finish, which is strong and lingers quite a while. This is a very good wine that should evolve at least another 6-8 years and drink well for another dozen at least.
This chianti is drinking well right now. Classic crimson coloring. Transparent edges. The nose is understated with hints of Tuscan minerality and sour cherries. The mouth feel is full with balanced acidity and round velvety tannins that are the best feature of this wine. 5+12+16+8=91
