(2015) A serious young Chianti Classico, which after 15 months in French oak and 15 more in bottle is just beginning to hit its stride. There's a great solidity about the fruit, cedar and tobacco spice on the nose, but also something elegantly kirsch-like and floral, and a suave sense of depth. In the mouth it has real concentration - much more than in many Chianti wines - but not at the expense of elegance and vitality: the fruit is dense, the tannins firm and meaty, and the cherry freshness of the acidity beautifully balanced. This should cellar well for 5 to 10 years very easily.
