Banfi Chianti Classico Riserva 2004 wine review by (PB)
Fresh cherries, licorice and sweet candied nose that is delightful.
Palate is tasty with juicy tannins. It is a bit tight on opening but shows promise. The wine is still young and should be really nice in three more years. It finishes with cherries. It benefits from an hour or more of breathing but enjoyable right out of the gate. At $14 it is a "raise a glass" wine.
