Enticing, racy aromas of red currant, tea leaf, tar and coffee. Big and broad on the palate, with open-knit yet still-precise flavors of red berries and minerals complicated by a whiff of underbrush. Displays seductive floral tones on the long finish and puts on considerable weight in the glass. From a not-so-famous vintage that was perhaps slightly underestimated originally, this is an excellent 1986 Chianti Classico. I should note that Italian wine insiders know that the wines of Ama can be superb in off-vintages, rising to the top when most others fail. This '86 is a clear example of why many of us seek to buy less famous vintages of these wines. -Ian D'Agata collapse
