Dark in color with a nose of red dried fruits, some wood and some earthy notes. On the mid pallet are some dried red fruits to match the nose. On the finish the wine is backed by some firm acidity that fades reasonably quickly. This one is likely too young or needs to breath. The finish is medium in length with some nice tannins. I would give this a 89 or so. Not a bad chianti at all …
