This has such a smooth polished feel to it with remarkably integrated tannins, but it almost disappears after drinking. I’m not sure how I feel about that. Perhaps it’s Mondavi owned roots have something to do with this affect.

Delivers in a big way for a #chianticlassico #chianti Starts off with simple red fruits and medium(+) acidity and a medium finish but, as it opens up, you get chocolate Touches and perfume from the merlot and Cabernet that go into the #sangiovese blend

Super savory Chianti Classico. Happy at first sip then develops with great generosity!

A typical Chianti Classico, and it's a good one. Cherry and currant on the nose. The lovely tannins and dryness with that spicy touch. Is winegasm a word yet?

Аромат довольно плотный, сладковатый, вяленой вишни, черники, сливы. Насыщенный. Тело умеренно полное, вкус яркий, свежий, сладковато-фруктовый, чуть сливочный. Послевкусие среднее. 16/20 (89/100)

This was the 2011 vintage from magnum. A more modern style of Chianti Classico with more oaky nuances. Easy to like.

14/20 (84/100)

Разбаланс, сухие танины, высокая кислотность, пустое тело. Неудачно.
