With ample reason, one doesn't necessarily think of Chianti as being long-term wine. But there are quite a few exceptions, and when you are considering an old-vine, old-school wine of top quality like this one, you will have found one of them. 1985 was a very good vintage, and the wine's original beefy character has been softened and it has gained a very appealing Burgundian character — woodsy and mineral, with some subtle cherry fruit, good tannic structure. A very nice wine.
