  • Montagne Saint Emilion Mis En Bouteille Par Grm 2011

    Snoothrank:

    I got given this bottle of wine at Christmas by my nephew and I have no idea where he got it from or any money paid. It is from Montagne Saint Emilion,the largest of the 'satellite' St.Emilion appellations, the area around the village of Montagne, about 4 miles north of St.Emilion itself. GRM [www.grm-vins.fr ] is a chateau owner/negociant house... Read More

  • Fontodi Chianti Classico 2011

    Snoothrank:

    100% Sangiovese Tea and tobacco emerge on the nose followed by extracted, heavy carob laced aromas of roasted fruit. Big, powerful, and inelegant in the mouth, this is all chunky and showing rich, roasted fruit with harsh tannins. Raw, unbalanced and surprisingly bad. tasted twice with similar results. 70pts Read More

  • Casaloste Chianti Classico 2011

    Snoothrank:

    90% Sangiovese, 10% merlot A bit tight on the nose and frankly weird smelling of sweet oak and grape jelly. In the mouth one finds a wine that is both rich and thin. Soft and shapeless on the tongue, this is matte and has an extracted feel that is not entirely unappealing on a textural level but there is no depth, nuance, of distinct flavor eit... Read More

  • San Vincenti Chianti Classico 2011

    Snoothrank:

    100% Sangiovese Dark, heavy, oily and tarry on the nose, this shows more interest in the mouth where it is all spicy and mineral on entry but turns heavy with fruit and large scaled in a raw, inelegant, tannic, tough, extracted way that leads to a bitter, hot finish. 78pts Read More

  • Castello d'Albola Chianti Classico 2010

    Snoothrank:

    95% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo A bit flat on the nose showing off some old wood tones and a bit of spice character as well. Decidedly flat in the mouth with lots of candied medicinal and herbal flavors layered over dark black cherry fruit this is rather short and inelegant but not overtly offensive. 83pts Read More

  • Chianti Classico Luiano 2012

    Snoothrank:

    90% Sangiovese, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot Smoky, ashy, and a bit overtly woody on the nose with coy fruit. Tight and nervy in the mouth, this displays decent weight though with flavors that are simple and not very distinguished. the texture is attractive, and this is refreshingly austere on the finish so it may just be going through a clo...

  • Monteraponi Chianti Classico 2011

    Snoothrank:

    95% sangiovese 5% Canaiolo Deeply earthy and briary on the nose with lots of astringent red fruits and smoky top notes. Theres plenty of sweet fruit on the palate, all raspberry and strawberry toned, but the flavors are a little roasted with a hint of truffle accentuating the ripeness which also shows up on the soft finish. This is both a bit ra... Read More

  • Carpineta Fontalpino Chianti Classico 2011

    Snoothrank:

    100% Sangiovese Smoky and earthy on the nose with rich aromas of potting soil and flowers with some spicy top notes. On entry this has some cabernet like power, dry and deep on the midpalate with black fruit and spicy flavors that offer nice textural cut but are abit anonymous. Blackcurrants on the slightly tannic finish which shows decent len... Read More

  • Castello di Verrazzano Chianti Classico 2011

    Snoothrank:

    95% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo Dark on the nose and a bit sweet smelling with a beautiful melange of frutti del bosco, woodland spices, and mineral aromas. A bit chunky in the mouth and rich with ripe cherry fruit, this lacks a bit of structure, turning soft on the palate which is a bit roasty and fudgy. that roasted fruit does show fine persistenc...

  • Fonterutoli Chianti Classico 2012

    Snoothrank:

    90% Sangiovese, 10% a blend of malvasia Nera, Colorino and Merlot Sweetly oaked and vanila influenced on the nose, this show some attractive black cherry and blackcurrant fruit aromas. A bit slick in the mouth in a rich but simple style that is attractively fresh with a nice mineral edge that helps to add a bit of cut to the rather chunky fruit.... Read More
