(Felsina Berardenga Chianti Classico) The aroma of Pontefract cakes here, liquorice and charred oak. The palate is rather soft focus, fleshy but with a grippy palate. Chewy, mouth-filling, soft. Certainly interesting, this has at least the potential to be very good, although beyond that I find it a little difficult to judge today.
(Felsina Berardenga Chianti Classico) This has a lovely glossy appearance. Nevertheless, there is little expression on the nose at the moment, just a faint seam of meaty fruit. On the palate though there is plenty of evidence of quality, It has a good weight and a very appealing structure at its core, where there is a lot of ripe but grippy tannin. It has a very firm character, but laid on top is a blanket of bright and lifted fruit. Good acid backbone. There is good potential here, but this needs time, two or three years at least.
