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

Amazing Sangiovese, they pull these grapes from the Tig vineyards. It was cherry, leather, cocoa. Huge fan.

Clear color with slight watery hint on the rim. Slight esrthiness on the nose that blow off after few minutes revealing dark cherry, plum and leather. On the palate the wine is nicely balanced with healthy acidity, clean fruit and medium+ length. Tannins are slightly sandy and already on the background. This is in good place with some air and I think few years from peak.

2011 is much concentrated than 2015. 30 minutes later, I could feel clearly. Even after good rosso di Montarcino, it is clearly different. @1250, wine plus - X duck, 190604-190606
