2010 Melini Borghi d’Elsa Chianti 12.5% $8

Seems a bit dumb on the nose, showing some bitter almond and green strawberry notes. On the palate, this is not the most expressive but boy is it well balanced and lively without being lean. Round and smooth, with simple cherry and strawberry fruits delivered with nice richness and really attractive structural balance. This is absolutely gluggable, though it does gain some added richness with air and nice herbal and slightly stemmy top notes. The finish is grippy and a touch coarse, but with more than enough fruit to keep this very attractive. 87pts
