The2012 Chianti Classico is beautiful. Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, tobacco and cedar flesh out in a generous, expressive wine with tons of depth and nuance. This is one of the deeper, fleshier 2012s I have tasted so far. The 2012 won’t last forever, but it is quite open and generous today. -- Antonio Galloni
