This was quite good. In general, 2011 is a good, not great vintage in Chianti, but this was very good. It is a very classic Chianti for all of the right reasons. Made from 100% Sangiovese grapes. Medium/dark ruby in color. Clear and bright. The nose is very nice. It is earthy with macerated cherries and fresh cherries along with a sweaty note. Sort of a rustic Tuscan quality. On the palate, this has bright cherries over a forest floor. Very firm tannins. Long finish. It was tasted and about half consumed, then a neutral cork inserted and left over night on the counter. Better on Day 2. That is always a great sign for ageability. Smooth with plenty of fruit. This will work well with pasta but also a nice grilled meat dish too. It may still get a bit better but should easily go another 7 to ten years and likely more if well cellared.
