Casale dello Sparviero 1997 Chianti Classico

This medium-weight wine displays ripe cherry fruit, heavy cedar accents and an easy, balanced mouthfeel. The fruit turns a bit pruny, but it also shows richness, even a touch of viscosity. The oak is cranked up on the fairly long, dry dark finish. Good now, better in a year.
