At Italian dinner in Tokyo, September 2009. Color thick, dense garnet. Hints of spice, tobacco, flowers on the nose, Extremely well balanced, with very good length, acidity and well-knit tannins. Minerality was surprisingly elegant, as were its dark fruit characteristics. Almost a feminine nature. I hadn't remembered having the wine before, but when it entered my glass, and I smelled and tasted it, I flashed back to a time in Florence at the beginning of this decade when I had an earlier vintage.

Dusty sweet red fruits, saw dust and barnyard on the nose. On the palate i found strawberry fruit and fig with minerals and herbs. It was at one soft yet drying with fine tannins. A good bottle that should be even better with time.

Clear ruby red in color. Earthy mineral and pepper on the nose. Tart cherry, red berries and spice. Nice Chianti.

Dirty mineral nose. Very light tannins, medium acid and body. Red cherry, minerals, medium concentration, interesting! Not just a food quaffer like typical Chianti. $20

Excellent Chianti. Nice structure, not too heavy. Good fruit, but somewhat tangy at the end. A very nice bottle of wine for less than $20.

Lavender and blackberry aromas follow through to a medium-to-full body, with a solid core of fruit and a tangy aftertaste of citrus fruit and dried cherry. Best after 2009. 15,000 cases made. -JS ** Only 11 in Stock ** ** Some Labels Wine Stained **

Deep, attractive ruby red color. Elegantly fruity nose, with marked scents of wild red berries foregrounding nuances of mixed spices. The palate, too, shows excellent fruit supported by judicious tannins. Lengthy finish.

The 2006 Chianti Classico Riserva is simply beautiful. Everything is in gorgeous balance as dark cherries, plums, violets and spices come together in a fresh, vibrant expression of Sangiovese. The wine is singing today, but it will be even more delic... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Sangiovese wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2006 Fattoria di Felsina Chianti Classico Riserva 750ml

The 2006 Chianti Classico is a beautiful, plump wine loaded with vibrant, sweet, ripe fruit. It offers lovely depth in an engaging style that is sure to find many admirers. This is a terrific effort from one of Italyandrsquo;s most consistently outstanding producers. Anticipated maturity: 2009andndash;2016.

Subtle aromas of ripe fruit and perfume follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a slightly dry finish. Disappointing. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

The 2000 Chianti Classico Riserva, a special cuvee made for the US market, adds plummy and ripe aromas to the nose, an important density to the palate, and some burly tannins on the finish, which give weight and depth but will require some time to round off. Drink: 2006-2010.

Winemaker's Notes:

Johannisbeeren, Kirschen, Vanille, voller Körper, reife, feine Tannine, langer, fruchtiger Abgang. In seiner Jugend eher verschlossen. Braucht viel Zeit um seine Qualitäten und die Vielschichtigkeit seines Charakters voll auszudrücken.
