February 15, 2016 - A very good Chianti nose with some maturity. A bit hollow body, quite short aftertaste.
August 13, 2015 - A clear, medium intense ruby colour (with a touch of garnet to the rims).
The nose is clean with medium intense aromas of roasted oak, coffee beans, roasted cocoa beans, ash, some dried fruit, cherries and a slight aromatic rose blossom note.
On the palate the wine is dry with a medium+ acidity, medium tannins, medium+ alcohol, medium body. The flavours are medium intense with dried fruit, some wood, earth, stalks and cherries. The finish is medium.
This is quite nice, though I've had this a couple of times before I can't remember the new oak being so distinct as in this bottle. And even though this is a type of roasted oak I enjoy, it somewhat drowns the rather delicate aromas of cherries and earth in a sea of coffee and chocolate. Not a big or complex wine, but with a slender structure, refreshing acidity and high drinkability! This was my last bottle, I can't see this getting much better though and should probably be put high on the priority list.
August 11, 2015 - Consistent with previous note.
July 12, 2015 - Mörk, lite övermogen frukt, körsbärskärnor. Tjära (tågvirke) Efterhand lite ljusare bär (hallon, smultron). Mandel. Mycket syra, lite bitter, torra och ganska försiktiga tanniner.
June 25, 2015 - The wine has a medium intensity ruby color.
The nose is very Italian and, in my book, typical Chianti with sour, dark cherries, fresh basil and sage and some dusty gravel. Not complex but enjoyable.
On the palate the wine is dry with a medium acidity, medium body and medium(-) tannin. It is refreshing and easy-drinking and paired very well with our Pici al Ragu. Surprisingly young for it's age and will definitely hold it together for another 1 or 2 years.
Very good QPR at 7€ (69SEK)!
November 8, 2014 - God, typisk sangiovese väl värd runt hundringen.
October 14, 2014 - Basic but quite nice chianti. Indescriptive nose with some cherries, sage, tar and raw fresh cabbage. High acidity with a decent fruit and decent length. No tannins to speak of. Quite refreshing and good QPR
August 1, 2013 - This definitely holds its own as a Chianti. Rather thin, but leaves a smooth finish. While very fruity, I also experienced hints of pepper and spices.
February 24, 2012 - Excellent chianti, really coming together right now. Superb value. Must get more of the 2009 vintage.
July 11, 2011 - Slightly corked. You could feel there is nice concentrated berry fruit. Cheap looking cork.
