Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and tobacco meld together in the 2011 Chianti Classico Vigneto San Marcellino. Rich and ample on the palate, the 2011 offers striking depth and nuance, along with terrific freshness for the year. Graphite, melted road tar, cloves and leather are some of the many notes that inform the virile finish. This dramatic, large-scaled Chianti Classico needs time, but it is immensely promising.

Beefy tannins shore up cherry, plum, black currant, earth and tar flavors here. Complex and juicy, with a long, spicy finish. Needs grilled meats or a hearty ragù. Best from 2018 through 2030. 950 cases made.

A structured Chianti Classico that shows lots of tannin and fruit density. Full body, chewy tannins and a chocolate, meat and berry aftertaste. Drink now.
