From one of the best producers of Chianti and in Tuscany, this wine was showing great. It kept improving all night long. Ruby/purple in color. The nose has dusty cherries with some tea leaves and a bit of spice. On the palate, slight tannins. Lots of concentrated cherry fruit. Medium bodied. Very nice acidity. Almost a smoked cherry flavor on the palate which is very interesting along with fresh cherries and a bit of tea. Good acidity. This wine should continue to improve for a few years and be good for another ten to twenty after that depending on your tastes. It is very food friendly. One of those wines to pour for people who don't regard Chianti as world class.
