Castello Di Cacchiano Millennio 2009 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, $33.99-$39.99, 93 points, poured an expected sunburst orange/red, being a core bright red trending orange at the leggy glass bowl.
Though the aromas were quiet, subtle fragrant floral red raspberry managed to impress.
Elegant early palate medium body with a delicate balance of near perfectly supportive tannin complemented the expected cuisine mastering acidity.
Varietal was 100% Sangiovese.
Flavors of hibiscus, red raspberry, strawberry, leather, and a hint of white truffle manifested an almost Rosé finesse.
Finished long on the trailing palate, mint, and mouth-buzzing tannin and a 14.5% alcohol.
