While Chianti Classico's are supposed to be ready to be aged around a decade, its sightly brick red colour meant that this wine was beginning to show its age. On the nose, I was met with a damp smokey scent, complimented with cedar and spice. I felt that most of the fruit notes were gone with just some remnants of plums. The rest of the flavours were wet stone, along with smoke and spices. The tannins were quite weak and the wine had a thin mouth feel.
Tasted March 2014.
