Dark, fresh ruby-garnet. Open, expressive aroma of plum complicated by notes of cinnamon, cedar and game. Large-scaled and concentrated, with tannins still in evidence but beginning to soften. Some acidity on the back end briefly lessens the impact of the fruit but gives the wine a pleasurable freshness. This wine's color and overall spiciness suggest that some of it has seen new-and small-barrels, perhaps from a year more recent than 1995. This is perfectly legal, by the way, and unquestionably part of an evolving new style for this wine, made at the Montalcino estate of San Felice in Chianti Classico. (DT)
