This is a textbook Chianti Classico. And I got this for a song on sale (I bought a case for a price that netted out at $10.50/bottle, including shipping, from zachys.com on a close-out!). I am an unabashed fan of the wines from this estate.
Very black-tinged ruby. Lively nose of red berries, tangy rich cherries, and a whiff of dry, dusty gravel. Smacks the mouth with ripe, zingy red fruits, wine-soaked gravel, and stony minerals. Very nice acids and well-integrated soft tannin keep the mouthfeel interesting. Nice length. Just a pleasure to drink. It's textbook Chianti Classico, which means not only is it fun to drink but it also will go well with a wide variety of foods. B+/A-. Will keep for at least another 2-3 years.
