Borgo Scopeto 1998 Chianti Classico

The solid dark cherry fruit here bears a heavy mantle of oak, but the fruit core is dense and can handle it. Black cherry, plum, licorice and toast work well on the full palate. Finishes tart and dry with good length and firm tannins. The oak works better here than in many examples. Drink now through 2004.
