Castel'In Villa Chianti Classico Riserva 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

92+ points Ian D'Agata (International Wine Cellar): Good bright red. Nose began closed and brooding, but showed vibrant notes of redcurrant, mint and dried flowers with aeration, complicated by a strong mineral quality. Sweet and nicely lush in the mouth, with suave flavors of redcurrant, herbs and tobacco joined on the back end by a very strong element of gunflint. The long finish features a firm acid spine and youthfully chewy but noble tannins. (Sep 2012)
