Melini Chianti San Lorenzo 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

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
