2010 Marchesi di Frescobaldi Castiglioni Chianti 13% $13

Very nice on the nose, a veritable bowl of cherries with hints of flowers, almond, pear and almond adding detail. Rather large scaled at first, this fills the mouth with lovely fruit. A bit plummy at the edges but cherry to the core, with soft tannins and enough acid to add a bit of snap on the palate. There’s some gentle complexity here, but this is all about finely presented fruit that follows through on the finish, retaining a hint of fruit sweetness while showing the gentle austerity of ripe Sangiovese tannins. Lovely wine. 88pts
