Long and persistent with intensity, develops slowly into moss, brushwood, iris, juniper and a little of wild fennel. In mouth it is a little astringent, warm, structured, fresh, tannins. Taste of iris, undergrown, musk mixed with vanilla.
"Capanelle's 2003 Chianti Classico Riserva is a powerful, enveloping wine loaded with the essence of sweet red cherries, menthol, smoke and tar. The wine possesses compelling inner sweetness and vibrancy, yet today those qualities are trapped behind a wall of massive tannins that will require a few years in bottle to settle down.
