    Winemaker's Notes:

    This traditional estate-owned Chianti Classico hails from Sangiovese vines with an average age of 25 years. Produced in a style that honors the time-honored traditions of past generations, the 2008 San Fabiano is a lovely medium-bodied effort with dusty cherry and black currant fruit, sweet cured meat, dark pepper spice and a whisper of vanilla oak.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Chewy and powerful, with lots of fruit and toasty oak. This needs time to chill on the palate, but there is so much going on. Offers an aftertaste of coffee and ripe berry. Best after 2010.
