Brunello Bob's Sangiovese Value List #1

6. Rocca di Castagnoli Chianti Classico (2010)

« Prev Next » 6 of 8
Average price: $14.99 from 1 store
The nose starts with solid black cherry flesh, with a slightly roasted character to it, and some milk chocolate notes at the core. Overlying that is a bit of elegance, with dusty sage, anise, and a little smoke.The palate is woodsy, with lean black cherry, and good acidity to support. Later, there's a little strawberry and some charred Earth coming through. Well balanced, with easy tannins and a savory finish. I've tasted this several times, and it does have some bottle variation, but each manifestation has been a good value.
