Istine Chianti Classico DOCG Sangiovese Blend 2015

Ratings on Delectable

This is a LOT of Chianti for your dollar. 2015 vintage has a ways to go in terms of attaining the proper harmony but the sheer intensity, focus and rustic beauty are superb. Pulsating with bright acid, mineral tension and dusty tannin. Tart red fruits and anise/cinnamon flavors light up the mid palate. Give it a serious decant now and it will be quite rewarding. Outstanding potential.

This was great. Almost chewable, but in a good, non tannic way. Like a cherry-plum cobbler but not sweet.
