Wine Advocate 87 points - An excellent Chianti, this dark ruby/garnet-colored wine offers a spicy, earthy, black-cherry-scented nose, medium to full body, muscular, austere, authoritative flavors, and a spicy, moderately tannic finish. It is just beginning to open and should age well for 7-8 years. (Apr 1995)
In the beautiful olive and cypress-studded countryside between Florence and Siena lay the quaint hilltop villages of the Chianti Classico region. The wine of the same name is produced exclusively in this charming and beautiful area.
