Castello di Bossi 2012 Chianti Classico (DOCG), $13.59-$21.99, 87+ points, poured a deep ruby concluding with some bricking at the clear wine ring.
The nose was only okay, marked by rather quiet prune, black cherry, and clove notes.
Medium-bodied with astringent tannins and mouth-watering acidity which managed dominant tart flavors of black cherry and pomegranate.
Finished long on the trailing palate with hints of mint, white pepper, and a significant 14% alcohol.
Paired okay with my spiced-rubbed strip steak.
