My Rating 78 Points.
Dark ruby in color with medium intensity and a wide red rim.
Nose of cherries, raspberries, currants, earth, wood, licorice, peppercorn, spices, green vegetables, chocolates, tobacco, herbs and bell pepper.
Medium bodied with high acidity and nice legs.
Dry on the palate with raspberries, strawberries, earth, leather, bell pepper, oak, vanilla, licorice, tar, bitter vegetables, black tea, forest floor, tobacco and peppercorn.
Medium finish with angular tannins and tart pomegranates.
This 7 year old Chianti, is a nice food wine, but not one to have by itself. Unbalanced and harsh. Simple, spicy and earthy with a tart ending.
Needs an hour to open up properly, and might be better in 3 years.
12.5% alcohol by volume.
