This Chianti Classico is rather lightly tinted for a red wine, and if I had tasted it blind I might have been tempted to guess it was a rosé. The nose has a basketful of fresh cherries in it, with a floral angle and just a hint of mocha and tobacco. The sip reveals more luscious red fruit, leaning just off center into tartness, assisted by a bit of limestone chalkiness. It sneaks along a little lighter than I expect a Sangiovese to sneak, and ends up making me think of the elegance of Pinot Noir crossed with the rusticity of warm-climate Syrah. The acidity is fresh andthe tannins firm. Pair it with your favorite Tuscan dish.

Ok, do not analyze finnish, nose, acidity ect. This is an Italian wine and you have it with Italian food and friends, family, wife, girlfriend... Then it is a 100 point wine. Classic indeed.

Very pretty with sour cherries, a herbal whiff and a touch of nutmeg. Quite light on the palate, juicy & tangy, with crunchy, juicy cherries and fine yet grippy tannins. This is very authentic and delicious if not too complex or profound.
