Great example of Sangiovese in Chianti

Those who wondered whether this wine was worth the money did not try it when it was fully mature, as this Sangiovese really sings. It has all the classic aromas and flavors of tart cherries, onion peel, bitter almonds, leather and creosote, with a complex finish that lingers endlessly. What time has given the wine is a texture of liquid silk and haunting secondary flavors and aromas of wild mushrooms and dried violets. The only (slightly) negative is that the wine was still a bit tannic, and it's likely that the tannin will never fully resolve. Other than that minor caveat, this is a great wine that any fan of Sangiovese would remember fondly forever.

Is it Worth it!

There are a lot of great Italian wines at this cost. Im drinking my 1990s now but they were under $30.
