Chianti Classico

2012 Italy Tuscany
88 Points

The 2012 Chianti Classico is a steady wine that doles out pretty aromas of dark fruit, sweet cherry, spicy leather and tobacco. The plumpness of the fruit finds a good match to the softness of the toasted oak nuances. This modern interpretation of Chianti Classico also offers yielding tannins and rich consistency. This wine should drink nicely over the next 3-5 years.

Underbrush, rose, dark spice and blackskinned fruit aromas lead the nose of this elegantly structured red. The savory palate delivers fleshy plum, juicy black cherry licorice and ground pepper alongside firm, fine-grained tannins. Drink through 2018. Palm Bay International.
