Barone Ricasoli Chianti Classico Brolio 2009
This Chianti is a gorgeous rich garnet color when you pour. Luscious aromas of deep dark cherries and spicy rich coffee. The wine gives off a ripe sweetness that makes you ponder if it will have a similar taste. Well, no time like the present to check! An almost exact mimic of the aroma - sweet and exploding with overripe black cherries with a hint of peppery spice and licorice. Oh boy was I enjoying my first sip. My second sip brought more bursting cherries and a rich bold and smooth, velvety finish that stays with you for some time. Big fan of this outstanding Chianti. What an absolute treat for me.
