Agostino Petri di Vicchiomaggio 2012 Chianti Classico Riserva, $20.39-$23.99, 88 points, was a well-dark maroon with an obligatory transparent wine ring and a leggy glass bowl.
Aromas of menthol, cherry fruits, and just a hint of the farm were just okay for me.
Medium-bodied with mouthwatering acids and firm grainy tannins supported good flavors of cherry fruits with plum and citrus notes.
Finished well on tart pomegranate, black tea, spice, and a spot-on 13.5% alcohol.
Paired nicely with sausage pizza.
