  • Banfi Chianti DOCG Superiore 2008


    Nice garnet color. A little plum on the nose. Not a real big bouquet though. A little cherry, some pepper and licorice on the palate. Well balanced but nothing that makes me go "wow". Not a bad wine but I can find better in this price range. To be fair though, I've had much worse in this price range too. Read More

  • Melini Sangiovese Blend Chianti Borghi d'Elsa 2010


    As GDP says, "we don't need fancy stuff". Since I'm a total philistine I wouldn't have known the difference. Lots of complex oak aromas and red fruit, fairly pleasant to take in. Pretty heavy body with lots of acidity, making it a good pairing for your favorite italian red gravy dishes. Well balanced, finish is a little buttery and concludes... Read More
