This is one of the most intense bodied Chiantis I ever drunk, which as Mr. JS sais, may not be 100% Sangiovese (that would make sense to me). The wine is integrated to aged, with medium body and bouquet of vanilla, cherry and leather aromas. The tannins are refined (decant for 15 to 30 min) and the finish is silky and medium to long. It is great to drink now or can be cellared for the next five years. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 91 pts - a recommended buy. Tasted May/10.

Let this one decant for at least 1 hour. I am in fully agreement with the Master Sommelier - there is something more than just sangiovese in this Chianti. It has a full-body that reminds me of cabernet sauvignon. All that said, it is a nice wine.
