If you like Chianti’s this is a good one. Lovely deep wine with a medium finish. The fruit is a little overwhlemed again (like the tempranillo I last blogged about). My GF says she tastes stewed grass in Chiantis and got it on this one. I get more prunes, maybe even stewed prunes. I would say this is another 89-90. Nice wine. Enjoyed it. No need to decant/breath …
