It's only wine but I like it

A very good Chianti Classico, with good complexity, bright red cherry/currant fruit and crisp acidity on the finish, I would rate it even higher if the French oak was a bit less noticeable, Maybe leans a wee bit too much to the more modern style of CC this vintage. Still, a fine wine. Tasted March 2021.
