Community Tasting Note

  • ex-sommelier Likes this wine:

    July 14, 2020 - Delightful Chianti. Rich red plums, black cherry, and rhubarb, with mint and assorted hedgerow coming with air. Earthy and delicious, better than a lot of $40 Brunello that's for sure. I missed the 2015s, but this has better concentration and balance than 2014 for sure. It should age well.
