Italy — Tuscany • $24.95 • 89/100

This 100% Sangiovese was aged for 12 months in Slavonian and French oak of various sizes and fills. It is deep, dense red, with bricking on the narrow rim. The nose shows some evolution, with leathery and drying cherry and plum aromas and a slightly cooked tone, with a suggestion of baking spice and humus. The wine is dry, with firm acidity and still-grippy tannins. There is a core of fresher fruit inside the evolving palate, with a cedary and earthy finish. A complex and interesting Chianti Riserva with a little age — an excellent value that I’d drink over the shorter term for maximum enjoyment. • LCBO Release 03/04/2017 • LCBO id#382945 • Find it at your nearest LCBOFRONTIER WINE MERCHANTS (Agent)
