Super-pure and concentrated. Done in what I’d term a Joven style (quite modern- no VA, no funk, dark) but not slutty or pumped up. Lots of energy for such a low price.

Gaiole Classico is a slam dunk with a pork chop. This was a little bit too ripe for us, but of incredible quality.

Leather, graphite, cedar, lamb fat, and dry soil. Shy, sappy raspberry liqueur. My first taste of 13 Chianti Classico and it seems promising

Ripe and a little on the modern side, but still very enjoyable especially considering how young it is.

After a tough Wednesday I wanted something special, and this delivered. Too bad it was the last bottle out of the case. Perfection in dark cherry fruit, galestro complexity and high acid Sangiovese length. A wower.

I think this might have been a little shaken from the shipment, and showed a little jammy. It was still very good with the food and had great acidity.
