The 1990 vintage of this wine was ranked #8 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 1992
A classic blend of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Canaiolo, two native varietals of the Chianti district. After blending, the wine is refined in French oak casks for 10 months, followed by an additional 3 months in bottle before release. "This wine is bright and juicy, redolent of black cherries, sweet spices and earth".
3 stars. Suspect this bottle was exposed to heat at some point. Not much fruit here. Dusty cherries, nice acidity and silky tannins but not as good expected.
