Tenuta di Nozzole D.O.C.G. 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva


Tenuta di Nozzole D.O.C.G. 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva, $13.59-$18.99, 91+ points, poured a rich pomegranate red with a slight bricking toward the clear rim.
Roses dominated the nose, but subtle black cherry and apple-wood curved any perfume-like accents.
The slightly more than medium body carried mouthwatering acidity with early palate good background tannin that escalates toward and into the finish.
Front palate luscious blueberry and blackberry transitioning into edgy pomegranate toward mid-palate were delicious.
The trailing palate finished long with a complexity of plum, mint, herbs, spice, and a well integrate 13.5% alcohol.
Lovely red wine at an incredibly good price.

    1. This Chianti, for the price, is remarkable in so many ways; if you get a chance to taste, please let me know what you think!
