From taste: Very herbal, with white pepper, clove and rosemary at the fore, cherry liqour and a touch of mushroom. Good intensity. Very rich, bursting with cherries, quite fat palate, lush and finishes herbal again. Fine length, acidity is low but offering its pleasure now with your spaghetti bolognese.

A lot of fruit, but missing the earthy/dusty quality that I like so much in Chiantis. 2010.

not as high in tannins as expected from Chianti, lots of leather and tar, dark fruits and spices

Top 100 wine spectator list. Fantastic Chianti! Smooth but subtlety dry.
