    January 11, 2009 - Deep ruby. Black cherries, some notes of bordeaux (although it isn't). Well balanced and not bad as acompaniment to meat. Could be more complex and with longer aftertaste. Tried at Tiramisu

    October 28, 2008 - Medium ruby/garnet. slightly smoky, sour red cherry nose, well integrated spicy oak, hints of earth and sous-bois. Fresh, appetising palate, more fruit than the nose with sour, fresh red cherry fruit, spicy oak and a lovely good length, slightly savoury finish. Plenty of life and decent depth, perhaps still a little firm in the finish - a lot better with food. I either under-estimated this last time out - or had a slightly off bottle. Good for at least another 2-3 years.

    February 6, 2007 - I enjoyed this wine immensely. Beautiful bouquet. Wonderfully smooth, interesting taste. Went great with my Chicken Giambotta with Penne. Adrianne liked it very much as well.

    (Fontodi Chianti Classico) A dark colour here, a red-purple shade, not quite jet black! Liquorice-infused black fruits on the nose, and a midweight, low-acid palate; this sort of profile marks most of the 2003 Chiantis I have tasted. rather chalky background character, a ripe seam of firm tannin that seems prominently incongruous, but some decent black fruits. A touch one-dimensional, but certainly drinkable.
