Castellare 2014 Chianti Classico, $17.84-$24.99, 89+ points, poured a bright cranberry red with a broad clear wine ring and leggy glass bowl.
The nose was a fruity strawberry, blueberry, and just a hint of chocolate.
Medium-bodied, mouth-watering acidity, and firm supportive tannin managed well the fruity flavors of the nose.
Finished long with a hint of spearmint, mild spices, anise, hints of oak, and the well-integrated 13.5% alcohol.
Just as a side note, I liked this wine better on the second day.
