very nice - could age well I expect. Totally disagree with Szabo - he must have had a ba bottle

This wine opened up with a very interesting bouquet of red cherry, raspberry, violets, licorice, tobacco leaf and savoury spices. On the mouthfeel, medium bodied, red fruit flavours, spicy with lively acidity and fine dusty tannins. It has a great depth and length on the finish with underlying earthiness and flavours of sour cherry, prune and cedar notes lingering. This is a very youthful, bright, traditional style of Chianti Classico Riserva and a definite food wine, best paired with Italian pasta in a tomato based sauce or an antipasto platter with strong cheese. This is a good value Chianti with an edgy personality, very enjoyable.
