Ça valait la peine d'attendre. Les premières bouteilles m'avaient un peu déçu pour un 2006. Mais là, il s'est révélé un chianti à la hauteur de mes attentes. D'un rouge vin très foncé, presque noir, des belles jambes, un bouquet soutenu et belle longueur en bouche. Du chianti comme je l'aime. Je le note supérieur à l'évaluation des critiques car il m'a apporté du plaisir évident.
