Wicked Chianti. Wickedddddd!

Blind tasted this, could tell it was a Chianti right away by the sour cherry. So complex. Leather. Tobacco. Oak. I regret not buying a couple of these. Good to drink now. This will age gracefully over the next decade.

Made with fruit from Tignanello estate, mostly Sangiovese with a splash of Cab Sauv, and a few others, aged in French and Hungarian oak for 12 months, cooler vintage than ‘17, lighter fruit character. Deep Ruby with aromas of red berry fruits with notes of floral and sweet spices. On the palate flavors of raspberry, cherry and red plum with licorice, cacao and vanilla oak. Firm rich tannins, long finish, ending with fruit, toasty vanilla and earthy tobacco. Good now but will improve over next 5 years.

Savory and meat, hint of sweet spices on the nose. Sweet red fruits and spices on the palate, very nice and juicy but somehow the aromas end quite abruptly. The tannins and acidity stayed.

Maybe I’m too much of a purist but I find this to be far too Cabernet and French oak dominant. I don’t go to Chianti for that and neither should you.

Dark cherry, plum, nutmeg, dried florals, tonka bean and oak. Feels more "worked" than lots of other Chianti, with a sense of the new world coming through

Lovely chianti balanced and appealing. This 2011 Chianti Reserva as a deep ruby color, a rich fruity nose full of red fruits, cherries, red current, vanilla, and light sweet spice, medium to full body, fruity, with firm tannins and great fresh fruity acidity. The finish is long, dry and chewy. My score 88, drink to 2019
