Quite dark on color. A bit brooding in Aaron as well with subdued, inky, black fruits and not a lot of complexity at the moment. This should age well and needs more time in bottle, for me.

Bracing, dry and a bit furry textured. Good match to bolognese.

Very deeply colored for a Chianti. A little over extracted and tannic, but pleasantly dry.

Nice, but when I want to drink Chianti, I want to drink Chianti. Not quite "new world", but more fruit, less tannin and less acid than I would want. Also lacking that unmistakable dusty/herbal Sangiovese character. Still a solid wine, maybe my expectations are too high.

Funky banana bread on the nose out of the bottle. Blew off and became funky drinkable. Not my favorite Classico.

Lots of red fruit for a Classico. Very new world.
