Drank 6/16/18.
Nice pairing with sausage lasagne.

Medium nose of black and red cherry, with some tar. Flavors of black cherry, earth, tar, and some tobacco leaf. Medium plus tannins add support without being distracting. Medium finish. A darker style of Chianti Classico.

3/22/8/4/3 + 50= 90 pts.

Showing all that a ripe vintage is known for...now, early mature Sangiovese aromas and savory flavors prevail. Weight and balance are modern-classic in structure. The QPR is rather good. Year in, year out this wine delivers regional character for a great price. Very cellerable. Will last another 5-8 years.

Classic Chianti, lighter version with a hit of spice. Corks were showing some seepage and this bottle’s color was slightly oxidized. Drink them fast.

Bright cherry and raspberry fruit, with a spicy, cedar punch at the finish. But the alcohol (13.5%) and cedar eventually overwhelm the fruit.
