Maybe the best Chianti I've ever tried. Maybe Its maybelline. But at $68 per bottle, it BETTER be the best Chianti I've ever tried.

2011v. This sangiovese/cab blend is under those new "gran selezione" classifications of Chianti. Pours a deep ruby. Intense and fruity nose of red cherry, currant, cedar, and a hint of mocha or spice. Lighter bodied than it looks, but the palette is awash with a mouth full of tannins with moderate grip. Very dry finish. Great accompaniment while young to my birthday ribeye steak, but could easily age for years to integrate tannins and develop the flavors. 15% ABV.
