Big Chianti
It seems a very good vintage
Self-explanatory tannin
Big potential and far too young to drink
Great flavor and long after taste
A sangiovese for real men

Good, fleshy Chianti
Earthy and savory
Driven by a entertaining raspberry focus freshness
It needs time in bottle I reckon
But I dare to say 2017s are going to age quite a long time.. and gracefully too

An exceptionally elegant, old school Chianti with a great combination of power and finesse. Intensely palate-coating black cherry, violets, cinnamon, anise and peppermint candy. Very long and vibrant finish. Some subtle nuances of orange rind, menthol and fresh herbs. This wine is supercharged with acidity and freshness, making it very hard to put down. Absent from my notes was any palpable sense of new oak. Those who appreciate this style will want to drink the whole bottle. Bravo!

Beatiful bottle. Just enough richness. Powerful tannin. Plums, leather, tobacco shot through with sunlight

Аромат чистый, не очень сильный. Вишня, миндаль, корица, всего понемногу. Вкус насыщенный, пряный, соответствующий аромату. Неплохо. 15/20 (84/100)
