Monsanto 2006 Chianti Classico Riserva

I gave this a vigorous aeration.

Deep ruby color.

Plum and prune smells, tar, vanilla oak in the background.

Tar taste at first, later dry plum and cherry fruit, oaky vanilla, tannins soften, acid becomes more apparent.

Very good medium-to-full bodied bottle for $19.99.
