Melini Chianti San Lorenzo 2010
With a bright, ruby color, the wine has a pronounced bouquet of raspberries and blackberries, with hints of violets and irises. In the mouth, there are well defined, full and savory flavors with a lingering, pleasant aftertaste of wild forest berries, blackberry preserve and almonds.
Editorial Reviews for Melini Chianti San Lorenzo
Very nice notes of bitter almond and sage frame the core of lightly jammy red currant fruit. This is a bit soft in the mouth, quite fruity and rich in a very clean style. It’s a nice enough wine but I would like to see a bit more detail. Though the acid does rise through the fruit on the palate, it never really breaks through, lending this a slightly Lifesaver candied quality. Certainly easy to drink, and the fruit is nice with gentle tannins and a faint bitterness, but this is rather four square and simple. 86pts
