  • Querciavalle Chianti Classico 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Earthy and resinous on the nose with notes of smoke, sour cherry and strawberry. Lively and bright on the palate with fresh cherry and raspberry fruit flavors, a focused acidity battling rough tannins and a mixed berry finish. Read More

  • Gabbiano Chianti Classico 2014

    Snoothrank:

    From all angles this is classic Chianti Classico. The floral cherry with soft earth on the nose opens for a textured palate of fresh cherry, raspberry fruit and a pleasant earth, fresh spice and an earthen finish. Not daring in any way but pleasant, approachable and a safe bet. Read More

  • Casanuova di Nittardi Vigna Doghessa Chianti Classico 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Earthy, mineral aromas of cranberry, cherry and strawberry are lightly floral.

  • Villa S. Andrea Chianti Classico 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Friendly, fruity aromas of perky cherry, blueberry and allspice with some restrained earth showing on the nose. The tart muted cranberry fruit, toasted char and mineral earth on the palate is quite striking for its lack of fruit after the expansive fruit on the nose. Read More
