  • fruit seems to be fading, acidity starting to dominate, still nice but drink up

  • Bel colore "genuino". Naso invitante e fresco, pieno di vita: amarene, erbe aromatiche mediterranee, spezie fini, sensazioni ematiche, carne ai ferri, terra bagnata. Bocca snella, fresca, con alta acidità.
    L'affinamento si nota ancora poco, può attendere in cantina ancora anni, ma mi era piaciuto di più tre anni fa quando era più giovane.
    Comunque sempre un bel "chianti" verace, fresco, vitale, ottimo a tavola con carne ai ferri.
    Pagato qualche anno fa 22 euro, oggi si aggira sui 31 euro, in definitiva forse troppo caro.

  • Friday Dinner at Chui Huay Lim (Chui Huay Lim): Pop and poured. Initially a bit tight, and really only opened up after 1 hour+.
    Appearance is clear, pale intensity, ruby colour. Legs.
    Nose is clean, medium- intensity, with aromas of dusty earth, toasted oak, sour red cherries. Developing.
    On the palate, dry, medium+ acidity, medium alcohol, medium tannins, medium body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of dusty earth, toasted oak, sour red cherries, raspberry. Medium+ finish.
    Lovely easy mouth-feel. Classic Tuscan Sangiovese taste. Very good quality. Can drink now, and enjoy over the next 5 years too.
    Sangiovese with a bit of Caniaolo and Colorino.

  • Fairly persistent and a touch alcoholic. This is completely fine and textbook and etc. etc. etc....but not for $50. I've had dozens of $17-22 Chianti Classicos this year that blow this away.

  • A dark garnet color, quite transparent. The nose is Sangiovese at its most traditional and essential: extremely dry and savoury, yet full of even sweetish sour cherry fruit, along with notes of dust, tobacco and tar. Very intense, very vivid. On the palate just as dry as the nose, with hardcore acidity and dense fruit. Despite the dryness the fruit here is perfectly ripe and extremely satisfying. Darkish sour cherry fruit is paired with terrific minerally nuances. What's most amazing is this wine has just a lot going on with absolutely no trace of weight. The fruit is ripe, yet the wine is more savoury than anything and the lift and freshness are just out of this world. There is an incredible airiness to the mouthfeel. The loooooooong finish is deliciously sour, cutting and mouthwatering, really insisting to take another sip. For me Sangiovese does not get much better.
