Community Tasting Note

    January 3, 2020 - Decent, although considering the vintage, pretty good. Good acidity keeps it lively on the palate, with ripe red fruit on the nose. Not overly complex, but a typical daily drinker of a Chianti.

    1/3/20, 6:10 PM - Curious, Bob. How did this compare to the '14?

    Do you feel age has helped this Chianti?

  • Bob H commented:

    1/6/20, 5:58 AM - It would be hard to compare the two wines - the 2008 is their basic Chianti, whereas the 2014 was their IGT, so quite a bit more expensive. In addition, 2008 is at this point considered to be a poor to middling vintage for Chianti.

    That said, I think generically that age always helps a well-made Chianti, so given the inherent limitations of the 2008 vintage, the wine showed as well as could be expected. But the 2014 is clearly (at least IMO) the better wine.
