Winemaker's Notes

"The stunning 1999 Chianti Classico Riserva is a dense ruby-colored effort that could easily pass for a grand cru red Burgundy. It boasts sweet, expansive, floral, black cherry, and kirsch liqueur-like aromas. As it sits in the glass, hints of leather and underbrush emerge from this medium to full-bodied, expansive, flavorful Chianti. Consume it over the next 5-7 years."
-Wine Advocate

This is a dense, structured, concentrated and ageworthy wine. Deep, dark color, with aromas of bing cherries, plums, leather, and spice. Flavors of blackberries, spice, cedar, licorice and smoke follow through to the long, ripe finish. Pure Chianti.
