Chianti from the Colli Fiorentini sub-zone is aged slightly longer than the more popular Chianti Classico equivalent and therefore should express a greater richness and complexity by comparison. This one however is dominated by aromas of cherry and spice. On the palate, sour cherry tart; perhaps a bit too much; the acidity dominates right now and it needs a rich meal to counteract the sharp edges. I`m inclined to give it at least 2 years in the cellar and then try again, it will mellow with age. Best after 2012+. (Tasted Sept 2010, Northof9finewine)
