Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim.

On the nose, blueberries, sweet strawberries, raspberries, wood, tobacco, spices, earth, black licorice, vegetables, vinaigrette, sweet herbs and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with cherries, strawberries, red currants, oak, tobacco leaf, spices, vegetables, bitter herbs, graphite, earth, vinaigrette and peppercorn.

Short finish with fine grained tannins and tart pomegranates.

This 6 year old Chianti Classico Riserva is drinking nicely now. A bit unbalanced and better with food.

Showing a soft mouthfeel with mild complexity.

Would pair nicely with pasta and red sauce.

13% alcohol by volume.

86 points.

$15.

Deep ruby color. Persistent aromas of dark cherry, plums and purple flowers. Dark cherry , plum and leather flavors with noticeable oak. Hints of crushed stone. Dusty texture and chewy tannins. Bright acidity. Thank You Chris B! Revisited in November 2022.

Blended cherry with licorice on the nose with very slight hint of must. Soft and gentle on the palate. Smoothness that makes you want to sit and sip all night.

$13 at Costco. 93 pts. Very clean and a little on the light side. Pretty good Chianti for the price.
