On the palate, bright cherry fruit. Deep. On the palate, cherries and slight plums with some underlying forest floor. Good acidity. Long finish. A very pretty Chianti. It is drinking well but should continue to for another ten to fifteen years. Better with food. Ribolitte (Vegetable stew) would be a great dinner match.
