This brooding beauty shows an ample bouquet of berries and violets that speak of the variety, and encompasses well integrated earthiness and spicy notes. It is a perfect example of the elegance, aromas and character of its unique soil: full, round, with silky tannins, good structure and lingering finish.
"Violet, black currant, black cherry, cedar and black tea flavors hold court in this sleek, supple red, with a lingering spicy aftertaste. "
"The 2009 Chianti Classico impresses for its polished, silky personality. Sweet red cherries, flowers and licorice are some of the notes that burst from the glass in this energetic, radiant Chianti Classico. This is quite a bit more pleasing than the 2008 and a lovely effort overall. "
The Wine Advocate
"Medium red-ruby. Spicy redcurrant, strawberry and herbs on the nose, with tobacco and smoke nuances emerging with air. Pliant red berry and succulent herb flavors show an appealing sweetness buffered by fresh minerality, but the wine turns a bit austere at the back. The spice and herb notes repeat on the moderately long, juicy finish."
