This wine never disappoints. Antinori always produces a solid chianti. 2008 is absolutely perfect right now.

Powerful oak flavors, silky tannins and black fruit. Ultimately makes a great Sunday evening wine!

Now Gran Selezione. Showing its age all around. Considerably more even keeled, effortless mouth feel, soft tannins, dusty raisin finish, acidity dying down. Could go longer!

Very nice bottle, starting to lose that standard cherry flavor and turning more earthy and floral. I guess 600 years of winemaking knowledge really helps make kick ass vino.
