The 2008 Chianti Classico Castello di Brolio reveals gorgeous layers of wild cherries, tobacco, herbs, spices and new leather. Darker, balsamic notes develop in the glass, contributing weight and dimension. The Castello di Brolio shows gorgeous delineation and a long polished finish peppered with hints of smoke, tar and incense. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Sweet red cherries, black tea leaves, dried shrooms, sandalwood. Fantastic extract with grippy tannins. Would have guessed Brunello based on the structure.

Pretty nose. Red cherries, red apple, rosemary. Great tannic structure, not overly astringent or tart. Excellent chianti Classico

Nez très complexe de cassis et de boisé. La bouche est onctueuse et longue. Parfait avec une viande rouge.

Plum, vanilla, high acidity and medium silky tannin. Alcohol slightly on the high side. Great chianti classical!
