Carpineto Chianti Classico 2008

This new release Chianti Classico from Carpineto had an aroma of savoury spices and cherries.  The palate showed some tannins, but lacked a bit of density for my palate. I really love sangiovese based wines, and this wine fits my theory that it is necessary to taste chianti classico wines "one by one" to try to find winners, rather than being able to rely on any particular labels or producers.  While this one is a well made and pleasant wine, I was hoping for more.  82 points.
