00 Casale dello Sparviero, Chianti Classico

Just as deeply aromatic, wild, and empowered as the 1999, Sparviero continues to explore the underside of Classico with the 2000 vintage. This vintage is more fruit forward with spicy flavors of ripe black cherries and sharp herbs, backed by primitivo-like funk. Proudly high acid and dry, slicing, dicing tannins. Also like the 99, however, the finish is a little flat.
