Perhaps the top Chianti, and certainly better than most Brunellos. Garnet in color, mostly clear and bright. The nose is nice with cherries, some black cherries, hints of anise, smoke and tea leaves. Full bodied. Medium tannins. On the palate, this is versatile and delicious. Cherries, forest floor and char with strong acidity. Long finish. This is still young but will drink well for another twenty years. If drinking soon, give it some air. This is made for food and while nice on its own, is better with food. Pizza or pasta would be great, but this will also work well with braised meats or fowl. Plenty of upside on this wine.
