95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2012
(14.5% alcohol): Medium saturated red. Red plum, redcurrant, tobacco, forest floor and potpourri spices on the sexy, very complex nose. Dense, sweet, suave and deep, with insidious intensity to the multilayered flavors of blueberry, tobacco leaf and loam. Wonderfully silky and sweet Chianti, finishing with fine-grained tannins and lingering ripe red cherry and spice flavors. The 2009 vintage doesn't get any better than this. An outstanding wine, and everything a Chianti ought to be.
