Barone Ricasoli Brolio Chianti Classico 2008

Good colour, with a plummy aroma, and a dash of sweet fragrant fruit.  A touch of merlot perhaps?  The palate had a bit of length, young tannins evident and rather opulent fruit.  Perhaps not outstanding, but certainly very easy and pleasant to drink.  85 points.
