Tenuta Tignanello Marchese Antinori Chianti Classico 2011

This is an excellent Chianti Classico, and one to buy.  It has aromatics of earth and sour dark cherries. It is the palate though that excels. Earthy with an impression of ripe dark cherries and good length on the finish. The texture drew me in most: soft, fleshy and balanced. VG

Abv: 14%, Price: low $40s, Website and vendors: http://www.antinori.it/en/26-generazioni/tignanello, Tasted: 2015
