In the glass, the wine has a glistening, dark royal purple color, almost black in the center, with flashes of magenta just at the edge. The classic Right Bank nose unfurls gradually with aromas of sun-warmed black raspberries, griotte cherries, and sweet white tobacco moving in and out of the foreground, sometimes alternating with Dutch cocoa, eucalyptus, and vanilla as the wine evolves in the glass.
On entry, the wine is luscious and succulent, building to a rich, juicy mid-palate, with a cornucopia of black and red fruit flavors that echo the nose, all lightly seasoned with toasted coconut, baker’s chocolate, and red berry acidity, and the long, elegant finish is punctuated with sinuous, fine-grained, dusty tannins.

A crisp, light wine that reveals white peaches, grilled apricots, and fresh lime with sea salt and a nice long finish. Ideal picnic wine. — 2 months ago
“In the glass, the wine has a dark oxblood red color, nearly opaque at the center, with flashes of bright crimson at the edge. The nose unfurls with aromas of black currants, amarena cherries, incense, and rosemary moving in and out of the foreground, sometimes alternating with fresh white tobacco, dark chocolate, coffee, and eucalyptus as the nose evolves in the glass.
On the palate, the wine is spectacular: juicy and opulent, with a dense sweet core of brambly black fruit seasoned with crushed peppercorns, eucalyptus, and mint, all perfectly framed in sleek, graceful, micro fine-grained tannins.” — Moore Brothers Wine Co., where we bought this excellent Chianti in May 2020 — a month ago
