  • Stefano Farina Chianti la Ginestra DOCG 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Tried the bottle after leaving it open for a good hour. The nose was rather classic, with fruity notes. The taste however was pungently green, with strong acidic tones. It was also too watery for a chianti. All in all disappointing. Read More
