This has a deeper nose, and extraction on the palate. Displays a mid-palate warmth, and weighty mouthfeel. Luscious, suave mouthfeel. Very well behaved. Good stuff.

Bright and acidic and also tannic, but good. Some dark fruit on the aftertaste, but mostly tobacco or leather.

I dunno if more extraction or global warming have anything to do here. Either way I’m digging it. Super approachable. What’s not to like.

Rich, tart, herbal... and very reasonably priced. Lots of cherry cordial vibes at first but keeps developing in the glass - did anyone else get mocha?

I see why this is WS #3 WOTY. Complex, immediately drinkable and a great value. Chianti Classico is such a great choice for those of us that don’t have a basement cellar and endless bank account to purchase wines and wait a decade for them to be drinkable.
