This is a big and complex chianti, not at all like the simpler chianti and sangiovese that I'm more accustomed to. First whiff announces this wine is definitely old world and surprisingly complex. Blackberry and stewed fruit notes are almost secondary to notes of leather, cedar, and vanilla. On the palate this wine is, once again, a surprise: it's bright and acidic with lots of ripe fruit. It starts out really with a really smooth, almost creamy mouthfeel. Lots of well integrated tannin tempers the acidity and doesn't come across as whatsoever aggressive. Good length too. At $63 CDN, I didn't think this wine represents killer value - but it does deliver for the price.
