Castellare 2012 Chianti Classico

Castellare 2012 Chianti Classico,  $21.99-$24.99, 89 points, poured a deep pomegranate red with orange flashes and a broad clear rim ring.
Aromatic with the pleasant smells of roses, grape notes, and blackberry.
The medium body carried mouth-watering acidity with firm and manicured tannins which trailed a bit astringent.
Flavors of tart pomegranate, plum, mulberry, watermelon, with hints of tobacco and strawberry were good.  
Finished fair on a well integrated 13.5% alcohol with hints of mint and mild spice.

  1. This will be part of my upcomign report. I liked it more. :) But your review is spot on.

    1. Happy New Year John! I'll be looking forward to your review, and just maybe the wine blogging world will appreciate what you have accomplished in such a short time.

  2. Thanks Dennis. You too. Sometimes I wonder - the "respect" comes slowly even as viewership mounts - but that could just be my perception. Buon Anno!
