    Taste: Dry, intense, complex and harmonious.

    Pair with cured meats, pasta and rice dishes, grilled beef, cheese.

    Shows Indian spices and ripe berries on the nose. Opens up beautifully. Full-bodied, yet refined and very polished. A long, lovely red. Best after 2010. 5,100 cases made.

    Even after a good aeration this wine is not redeemed. Bitter and lacking character this 2006 vintage disappoints

    Surprisingly light, in fact, too light for a good chianti. Lacks body. No depth or complexity. One note. Over-rated by WS.
