Licorice, tart cherry, tar, grippy tannins, crushed rock, plum, little smoke and nice acid. Pomegranate on the finish.

Sour cherries and plums initially. Very dry, quite acidic, and without any developed secondaries. Hoping some air time helps! Edit: Time did help, but merely smoothed out the acid, and ripened the fruit. Hours later it is still a clumsy wine.

entry is nice and sweet, finish a bit short, acidic and tart. On the sweeter side for a chianti. sam rec. not bad for the under $15.
