Quite young Chianti Classico showing light oak aging, high acidity and medium tannins. This has red fruit and spicy aromas plus I detect some light tertiary leather, cocoa and liquorice aromas too

Nice smith, not too fruity but nicely rounded. Went well with a curry.

I've really enjoyed Waitrose's "in partnership" range and this is one of the best ones. Good value Chianti clasicco, okay nose, earthy with good fruit on the palate

Nicely balanced. Still nice freshness and acidity and clean fruit.
