Felsina Berardenga 2007 Chianti Classico DOCG

Dark but transparent red color.

Cherry, berry, and leather smells, tar at the end. Am I imagining or is there just the least little whiff of wet dog brettanomyces?

Raspberry flavor, tart cherry, leather.

I think this very good $22.99 bottle would benefit from some vigorous aeration. Both the smell and the taste are a bit shy and they might be more likely to come out to play with some more oxygen.
