This is a mature Chianti with complexity on nose and palate but has spent a little too long in barrel and needs...

Tasted Feb 2012. Went beautifully with a filet mignon and grilled vegetables. Nice sour/tart cherry flavours with leather and spice. Excellent bottle of wine.

Cherryish, cinnamon, full bodied, slightly earthy and delicious. There is an amazing rack of lamb in my fridge that would go very well but this wine would also hold up nicely to a juicy steak.

Slighty sour red cherry along with earthy notes and bright acidity. Some firm tannin and quite a long finish. Perhaps a bit "old school" for some, but I really like the authenticity, especially in this age of homogeneity. Very nicely done. Drink now through to 2015, perhaps longer.

Developing nose of black licorice, cherry, and cedar. Palate is dry, with a firm acidity, fine tannin, and full body. A pleasing sour cherry predominates with the lingering licorice root note. Long length. Feb 2011

Tony Soprano's table wine.

Dark purple. Medium-full body. Fairly tight nose. Plenty of fruit, plenty of tannin and very (too?) woody. Very dry, a bit rustic. A masculine Chianti. A good table wine to go with a roast or a pile of hearty Italian food. This really should be $5 cheaper.
