Castellani 1997 Beni Duilio Castellani Riserva (Chianti Classico)

There's lots of toast on the nose and palate of this very New Worldish Chianti, but there's no denying the appeal of the blackberry, espresso and bitter-chocolate elements. Gracefully broad-shouldered, it packs in a lot of flavor. The long, black licorice-tinged finish bears full, but smooth, tannins. Drink now through 2004.
