    Winemaker's Notes:

    The nose shows rich, concentrated fruit, with abundant blackcurrant and blueberry preceding clean-edged impressions of plum preserves, while black pepper and cinnamon nuances mark a very lengthy finale. It develops quite full-bodied on the palate, warm and generous, with a well-built, velvety suite of tannins. The progression through the finish is complex and lingering, complemented throughout by a judicious acidity that perfectly balances the alcohol.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Good full red. Racy, deep aromas of raspberry and mint, complicated by a woodsy element and hints of underbrush and sweet spices. Then sweet, plush, dense and silky, with well-focused flavors of red cherry, smoky plum, milk chocolate and tar. This impressively deep, powerful Chianti finishes very long, with bright acidity and a captivating floral element. Should go down as one of the best Montesodi vintages ever. Enjoy it over the next 30 years.

    International Wine Cellar

    This powerful red shows very ripe dark fruit such as raisin and mulberry on the palate, with toasty oak. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long finish. Needs time to mellow. Best after 2010. 6,000 cases made.
