Antinori Badia a Passignano Chianti Classico Reserva 2001
The black fruit, great density and concentrated flavors of Chianti Classico. Dried strawberries, roasted meats, olives, and floral aromas and flavors go beyond the norm for Chianti Classico to make a wine of extraordinary character and depth. Rich tannins are supported by deep black fruit, seamless barrel integration and an overall sweet palate impression.
