Muted on opening...so much in fact that I thought it was flawed. 90 minutes later it started to blossom and was improving up to the last drop. Massive tannins, this will need a few years (probably will rate much higher as well).

Beautiful out of the bottle and into the decanter where it evolved during pouring. Cherry and tannins that went with everything. Considering this is probably $60 at retail it’s a great value for this level of wine.

Leaning toward mature fruit and mellow Chianti flavors. Brick red color with some oxidation.

Wow so good. Overkill for a delgorno pizza lol
Wifey wanted a chianti and saw this and pop n pour later, we killed a baby. Still tannic and built for long haul as expected. Very good and promising.

Color of dark yet clear burgundy with bloody red in the rim. Nose is beauty with black currant and raisins, oak, polished alcohol, refined acidity, and dried strawberries. Taste is dry with powerful tannins and balsamic vinegar, some vanilla or strawberries ice cream, a bit savory spice, peppery, ripe cherry, dense flavors. Aftertaste is medium long and tasty with peppery taste in the throat. Very enjoyable.

Powerful riserva from top producer. Excelent year. Still young, but delicious with enough air.

Heavy bodied chewy tannins in this Chianti. Burst of red fruits playing off a palate of bitter herbs. Salty taste of capsicum and salami makes this a joy to pair with meats and cheese.
