Nice. But not going out of my way to find this wine again - not a great value. Revisiting a year later - 1/20/19 - I find the wine better integrated and am starting to enjoy it. Upped the rating to 89 but feel it will probably go higher with more age.

Black cherry and cinnamon tobacco on the nose. Herbal, tobacco and red fruit with a hint of chocolate on the palate. A very consistent chianti.

Italian wine varietal night #2 after the Dolcetto: Aromas of violet, plum, and cherry with hint of somewhat unripe dark berries, smoke and tobacco flavors.

Pan seared elk loin, new potatoes friend in butter, and another Chianti reduced down with some maitake mushrooms for a sauce.

Rich with dark fruit and slight chocolate finish that is dry as is typical for an Italian chianti. 2012
