Lamole De Lamole (Vigneto DI Campolungo) 2011 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, $36.99-$39.99, 92 points, poured a pomegranate red with a broad clear wine ring.
Aromatic black cherry, roses, and a cedar-based potpourri were excellent.
Medium-plus body with firm grainy tannins and mouthwatering acidity managed black cherry, sweet tobacco, and black tea flavors well.
Finished fair on the trailing palate, easy warm spices, slightly astringent tannin, and a gentle 13.5% alcohol.
Varietals were 85% Sangiovese 85% and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Paired perfectly with my matriciani in a artichoke marinara sauce, and a side of warm toasted garlic bread.
