A bit fudgy on the nose and very ripe, this still shows a bit of roasted herb and a touch of oak, along with some bretty animal notes. Very ripe in the mouth delivering a big rush of cherry fruit, accented with spicy oak and a hint of vanilla. Nice acids here add brightness but the wood tannins are a bit assertive and lend the finish a chewy character. 83pts

This is earthy and dry on the nose with more than a whiff of oxidation. A very soil driven, earthy, leathery nose is nicely complex but decidedly old-school. In the mouth this is fine, still old school and not very complex though there are some nice mineral notes and a touch of blue fruit accenting the strawberry notes. Texturally this is actually quite appealing, very true to chianti with bristly little tannins and fine mouth washing acidity and while the fruit is a touch modest, this is a very typical mouthful of rustic Chianti finishing with good length and snap. 84pts

Some dirt on the nose with hints of smoked meat lead into a palate of soft cherries and raspberries. Fairly light in the mouth and on the finish- not complex by any means but a nice sipping wine!
