Very bright and crisp early on. Mellow with some air - complex and balanced with red fruit and chocolate notes. Really nice. 93 Pts from WS seem high but not unreasonable.

I don't know about 92 points, but I paid $22 for a 2011 Chianti classico riserva, and it's good. So it's a winner.

Cherry, raspberry. Not enough spice/tar/etc.

Dark purple in the glass. Shy nose on opening. Black cherry, plum, and licorice leather on the palate. Medium minus tannins (disappointing) and medium acidity (was hoping for a bit more there, too). Without looking at the composition, I'm guessing an inordinate amount of Merlot is taking too much of the edge off of the Sangiovese. A decent wine, but doesn't seem true to the appellation. This is a Classico Riserva, after all. For that, I'm marking it down a touch.

枯れた感じ。
タバコ、枯れ葉。瑞々しさはあまりないが、最後は割とタニック。
サンジョベーゼらしい上品な甘美さはあまりなく、味わいも香りも平面的。
2日目に白ワイン用の小さいグラスに入れたら、良い甘さが出てすごく良かった。
