Ruby red colour with transparent and delicate tones that appear penetrable to light showing garnet nuances. Clear and consistent wine. Intense, complex and fine wine.The olfactory analysis is marked by the floral presence of violet and by fruity notes of plum and ripe blackberry. Then, iodine shades, aromatic herbs, earthy and hematic nuances. Memories of tobacco leaves and rhubarb. Sharp mineral vein. In the mouth, very clear acidity and well vivid and lively tannins never aggressive. Freshness is a very important element in this wine. It clearly marks this Chianti Montalbano Riserva giving it agility, sharp tones and a lot of drinkability. It is the freshness that makes this wine modern and very enjoyable.
