Cherry and fresh berries are integrated with elegant and balanced tannins. Good acidity and mineral expression on the long, persistent finish.
Wine Advocate 87 points - The easy going 2010 Chianti Classico opens with distinctive aromas of forest floor and crushed clove. Wild berries and button mushrooms help fill in the rear. The mouthfeel is streamlined and bright. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2016 (Aug 2013)
Wine Enthusiast 89 points - Made with organic grapes, this shows violet and toasted aromas of coffee and carob. The palate delivers dense, dark fruit with hints of orange peel, herbs and well-integrated oak. It’s tightly knit, with lithe tannins. (Oct 2013)
