I wish I had a photo of the 1997 volpaia riserva I tasted which was delish. Here, another example of my pref for the straight chianti Classico bottlings on release

Notes of cherry, leather, shale. Ultra dry with notes of walnut, cherry and tobacco over the mid palate and finish. Very, very nice Chianti Classico Riserva with 8 to 10 years ahead of it $65

Dark cherry, dried herbs--hard not to like. Young though; second day open and it's better than the first.

Very nice Chianti, finishing with a bite from the Mammolo. Smooth and elegant, but a little past its drinking window, yet still quite enjoyable and excellent. This wine needs to be open at least one hour before consuming. A great purchase, but it has maybe one year left.
