Ripe, fruity, berries and cherry explosion. This is a killer offering, dark ruby red in the glass, inviting with a nose you're not going to tire of. Fantastic development, a really interesting wine that gets top marks at all stages of the tasting. Structure and class running throughout and a thick chocolate topped cappuccino note in the midpalate, it's something of a desert treat as much as a wine. Long finish and as clean as a whistle. Sumptuous, possibly the best Chianti Classico around, 2004 fantastic vintage. Am I really going to give a Chianti Classico... 94 Points
Herbaceous and fruity aromas of artichoke and red fruit, mostly cherry. Flavors are super bright with strong, rough tannins, cherry and strawberry jam, and a cherry leather finish.
Bing cherries on the nose. Rich and smooth, really silky. More powerful and much fruitier than the '06 is at the moment. Black cherry and blueberry mainly. Less acidity, but its still there on the finish, mixed with figs.
The wine starts with a peppery and spicy nose with hints of cherries. Offering great balance, with strong acids, great fruit, nice complexity and a good rich mouth feel. White pepper on the finish, which is still tight and leathery. Even a little licorice and plums in the finish too.
Rich and dense, soft and elegant, a touch of class.
