Italy — Tuscany • $19.95 • WD Score 88/100

This is an attractive Chianti Classico that is beginning to show a little bottle age. First, notice that the wine is garnet on the rim, fading from its cherry-red core, and then the very ripe cherry and berry fruit on the palate has a leathery edge, with an undertone of damp earth. But the balance is still towards freshness, as the firm acidity centres the palate, nicely backed by the fine, lingering tannins. I’d definitely drink this in the next year or two for maximum enjoyment, although the structure will allow it to age a little longer than that. • Tasted 2018-02-03 • LCBO id#378026 • Find it at your nearest LCBO • LIBERTY WINES INC.
