Top Chianti Classico tasted 3/2014

3. Dievole Chianti Classico (2011)

« Prev Next » 3 of 8
Average price: $20.00 from 9 stores
90% sangiovese, 10% complimentary red grape varieties Rather explosive on the nose with superbly focused aromas of mineral, dried herbs, and smoky nuances all layered over a base of slightly jammy wild strawberry and lingonberry fruit. Perhaps a touch soft on entry, this then firms up with a fine astringent streak running through the cherry and strawberry fruited palate. In the mouth the fruit tannins built up showing great structure and compelling complexity that lingers through the long finish. This could use some more definition on the palate, which may come with time, but is already very good. 90pts
