This was a purchase I made locally over the weekend. A Chianti that has the maximum amount of non-Sangiovese (Cannaiolo I believe) blended in to still be allowed to call it Chianti Classico. Made with the assistance of Giulio Gambelli (of Montevertine and Soldera fame), and highly recommended by my local wine merchant, I thought this would be a great bargain. Unfortunately, all the hype doesn’t compare to what’s in the bottle. Although the wine has considerable concentration of fruit for a simple Chianti Classico, it lacks intensity and seems slightly hollow on the mid-palate and short on the finish. The wine seems fairly simple with very dusty tannins, that I found to be distracting. Even at $15, I cannot recommend this.
