Agricola San Felice Chianti Classico Riserva Poggio Rosso 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva Poggio Rosso is a big wine. Sweet dark cherries, flowers mint and licorice come alive in this vibrant, beautifully delineated Chianti Classico. The 2008 impresses for its inner perfume and pure sense of energy. It will require a few years to soften but is shaping up to be delicious. This is a terrific showing from San Felice. Gorgeous, strikingly pure aromatics redolent of succulent cherries, violets and roses linger on the intensely fragrant finish. The 2008 Poggio Rosso is 80% Sangiovese, 10% Colorino and 10% Pugnitello that spent 20 months in 500-liter French oak barrels...93" WA 06/12

The nose showed dark red and black fruits with wood spice, intense florals and raspberry undertones. On the palate, I found tart cranberry and raspberry fruits and dark chocolate against structured, medium-bodied textures. The finish was spice and full of tart red fruits. This wine was very enjoyable on this day but should continue to mature beautifully for, at least, another ten to fifteen years.
