    Region: Tuscany, Italy

    Varietal: Sangiovese

    Item no. 12434

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Color: Deep purplish-red but bright and exceptionally concentrated.

    Bouquet: Extremely intense and complex with scents of cherries and raspberries accompanied by light toasty and spicy shadings.

    Flavor: The impact in the mouth is incisive but soft due to a substantial structure of tannins in which those that are soft and well rounded stand out. Acidity is fused with the wine's body and aids the transmission of pleasant sensations of warmth and strength. The wine features a long finish that is unusual for a regular Chianti Classico.

    Conclusions: Those who argue that Chianti Classico is a prickly and rough wine will change their minds after tasting this 1999, which is ready to drink now but will improve for at least five years more.

    Alcohol: 13.5% by volume
