Monticello Vineyards 1997 Riserva (Chianti Classico)

Best Buy

A complex bouquet offers black-cherry, soy, game and anise notes, and opens nicely to an expansive palate with earth and leather notes accenting the fruit. The dark finish, with its coffee and orange-peel notes, shows some of the intrigue of the nose. Beautiful in its youth, it should get even better in a year or two. Beautiful price, too.
