2018 Chianti Classico DOCG, Tuscany, Italy

Firm, somewhat nutty and slightly cocoa- and coffee-spicy aroma of ripe mixed berries with a hint of iodine, Mediterranean herbs, tobacco and a hint of juniper. Tart, juicy, ripe fruit with present, fine-dusty tannins, a little smoke in the background, dried herbs and hints of citrus zest, a trace of coffee grounds in the background, chalky-salty tones, has some bite in addition to its power and alcohol warmth, also becomes juicier and fresher with air, very good, quite tight finish.
