Big cherry, ripe and full, Tuscan leather. Bad vintage, great wine. Antinori knows what they’re doing. The age helps.

It’s Tuscany day in L’arangaville.

Well made Chianti. Well aged. Not the best year, but still a great wine.

You can smell the cherry from across the room.

It’s good, not gran. This wine is as good as a well-made riserva, but nothing more. That said, a well-made riserva is still quite special so don’t be misled by my harshness here. This is still an excellent Chianti.

15.5+/20 (87+/100) Достаточно нейтральный аромат с нотами чёрных ягод и шоколада. Тельное с довольно высокой кислотностью и мягкими танинами. Вино «закрылось», следует подождать ещё хотя бы год.

Well rounded with plum and red currant tasting notes. Nice finish. A touch of vanilla on the nose perhaps?

So much more tense and linear than the ‘10 I tasted a month ago. Yet pure and focussed dark cherry, nicely puckering dry tannins and a lonnnng finish. Not with the best BaPs I’ve enjoyed (‘01 a SuperT). Could need more time.
