2003 selvapiana bucerchiale chianti classico riserva
"Bright light-medium ruby. Highly perfumed, penetrating nose redolent of bright sour red cherry and raspberry, complicated by minerals and white pepper. Similarly lean and penetrating in the mouth, with wonderfully ripe acids nicely framing the copious red fruit flavors. A slightly earthy, gamey edge adds nuance. Tannins are still a bit tight due to the vintage in an otherwise spectacular wine."
