Notes: It appears deep ruby garnet, still vibrant, with good legs. On the nose it's clean and offers, with med+ intensity, developing notes of tobacco, cola, cedar and some leather and game, red/black cherries, cranberries, plums, blackberries, earth, mint, lavender white pepper and incense. On the palate is dry, with med/med+ acidity, medium+ dusty tannins, medium alcohol, med+ body, great flavour intensity and complexity with chewable mid palate and a long finish.
Oak influence is present yet well integrated, therefore the elegance of the honest terroir-driven Chianti Classico is preserved.
Outstanding quality. Ready to Drink Now will still develop for few years and probably keep for a decade,  Premium Price, Sangiovese and Colorino, Radda in Chianti, Tuscany, Italy.
