Marchese Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva 2006 Wine Review (NW)
Big nose with dark berries, roasted notes, and cedar
Full bodied on the palate
Long, layered finish, complex with dark berries and earthy notes
If you have this wine stashed away, open it and enjoy! It's drinking beautifully right now at eight years of age. It's immensely flavorful and has a nice complexity to it that drives the finish. Well made and expressive, for sure. Expect to pay around $30 if you happen to see it in a store. Thanks to Ken and Emily for supplying this one over a Summer dinner on the porch. Raise a glass!
