    Winemaker's Notes:

    This beauty shows an ample bouquet of berries and violets that speak of the variety, and encompasses well integrated earthiness and spicy notes. It is a perfect example of the elegance, aromas and character of its unique soil: full, round, with silky tannins, good structure and lingering finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2006 Chianti Classico is a dark, brooding beauty endowed with generous dark cherries, herbs, earthiness and tar. This is an especially large-scaled Chianti from a property that continues to show improvement. The wine’s generous fruit makes it appealing today, but the wine also appears to have the stuffing to last for at least another few years. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2016.

    The Wine Advocate

    Sangiovese from Chianti Classico is characterized by bright berry aromas and crisp acidity. This expression is no exception, although in this particular case the wine also offers playful layers of almond and spice to add texture at the back.

    Medium ruby. High-pitched aromas of raspberry and minerals. Then vibrant and deep on the palate, with excellent intensity of black cherry, licorice and mineral flavors. Polished tannins and good length make this a winner, though it lacks the complexity for an outstanding rating.
