Big extracted wine, still solid dark red in the core, brick on the edge...not what i was thinking as a classic chianti..new oak, vanilla, toast, spice. Albeit, delicious wine, but not expecting that! Great producer...

This is a well done modernist chianti with rich dark fruits and some new oak, hay, dried oregano and roasted anise.

Gorgeous floral nose. Lots of cherry, berry and earth flavors packed in to this. Grippy tannins. Nice.

LCBO. Needs to breath before drinking. First glass was a bit sharp...but second glass was much smoother. Drier than wines we normally drink.
