This is so delicious with meat berry and chocolate character that follow through to a full body with velvety tannins and a long rich finish. Made from organic grapes. Drink now.

The 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva (Sangiovese) is a beautiful precise wine laced with sweet dark cherries menthol tobacco minerals and spices. It shows gorgeous clarity and precision in a highly appealing mid-weight style. The Riserva spent 24 months in oak 80% cask and 20% new barriques a much better balance for the fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2023. - Antonio Galloni

Blueberry and blackberry flavors are married to a lean wiry frame. Hints of flowers and mineral add dimension and this closes down on the finish. Needs time. To be released spring 2012. Best from 2014 through 2024. -BS
