Tasted On 05/02/2015
Concentrated colour of deep red/purple. Ripe red fruits on a concentrated aromatic nose with mushroom, pine forest spice, and light pipe tobacco smoke. Dry on the palate with exquisite balance of acid and integrated tannins. Flavours of raspberry, cherry, and earth that linger for a nice finish that is smoky and with subtle spice. Very nice wine, and drinking wonderfully!
This is my second bottle to uncork. As with the first, it is a very mild Chianti with very subtle pepper. Dark ripe fruit and a hint of toast characterize the nose. Black cherry graces the palate, with a hint of anise. The tannins are polished and nicely integrated. Nice finish inviting another taste.
