A distinctive offering marked by a beautiful seamless quality, some exotic aromatic notes and a unique bottle design. Cedar, sandalwood and a sweet dustiness on the nose open to a cherry and toasty oak palate. Dry and even in the mouth. The finish has fine-grained tannins and a lovely back-end bouquet. Drink now through 2007.
This Chianti Classico Riserva offers nice density, extraction and generous aromas of cherry, blackberry and spice. It’s a modern wine with a twist of Tuscan traditionalism that you can taste in the focused and sharp nature of the fruit.
This Riserva has held up well to time and a hot vintage. The nose is redolent of black fruit, plum, prunes and road tar. Rich fruit and exotic spice characterize the mouthfeel. Drink it with stewed beef or game.
This is an attractively saturated Chianti Classico from Radda in Chianti with distinct aromas of red cherry, cola, root beer, resin and road tar. The wine is sharp and focused with bitter almond flavors on the close. Try it with honey-roasted ham.
Mineral tones, vibrant fruit, root beer and oak shadings are principal components of the wine’s well-balanced nose. The mouthfeel is lean with medium intensity and bright fruit flavors on the close.
Lightly toasted oak renderings give Vigneti di Campomaggio a smokey, sophisticated feel with cherry and berry fruit in the background. Lasting renderings of blueberry and dried cassis keep the wine genuine and straightforward.
Aromas of deep cherry, oak, olives, roast (not brewed) coffee and anise open this solid offering. Flavors of apple, leather and spice follow, with a nice medium-weight mouthfeel. It closes with a finish of moderate length, showing tart fruit flavors and a hint of olives.
A good deal for a 100% Sangiovese estate-bottled wine. The bouquet has nice baking-spice aromas, primarily cinnamon and nutmeg, while the flavor profile stocks foresty cherry-berry fruit. Smooth enough late, with vanilla and dried spices. High acidity prevailing in the center is the only fault .
