This starts off with noticeable chocolate oak on the nose and then has lots of cherry cordial, wood spice and some rose petal. This is very smooth and soft in the mouth. There are very attractive flavors of dark fruit, mineral, leather and toasty spice all wrapped in a gentle wash of cocoa. This will have very broad appeal, it really delivers a fine rendition of Chianti, if rather rich and sleek. The fruit takes on a gritty aspect on the back end then yields to a lovely, austere finish, which sees a bit of wood tannin lingering on the finale. Not exactly my style but lovely. 91pts
