Musty old wood with a hint of fresh wet grass on the nose. Dark fruit on the palate... plum, cherry, with notes of oak. Lighter on the palate with a mellow finish, which is a defining characteristic of Italian red wines, especially Chianti.

There was something about the nose I did not like on this one. The flavor was also very dry and heavy. Not my favorite.

Distant but deep cassis aroma. Supremely earthy, woody with some layers of spice, cocoa and dark coffee. There are soft tannins across the background. Iā€™m looking for more cherry and dark fruit flavors in a #chianticlassicoriserva - this bottle might have been a bit oxidized.

The cork broke in half as I was opening it....The first sip tastes sour. Drank it with a hearty lasagna, as suggested, and it paired okay.

Tangy and astringent with an odd aftertaste. Just not my cup of tea.
