Carpineto Chianti Classico Riserva 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

A complex and elegant bouquet highlighted by persistent raspberry and vanilla aromas. It is warm and full with a velvety mouthfeel and a long, generous finish. This Riserva will reward extensive cellaring.

Clean, fresh black cherry and blackberry aromas with fresh cinnamon spice and vanilla creaminess on the nose. This is freshly spiced and zesty on the palate, with black currant and black cherry fruit, freshly juiced yet at the same time preserved, thick, rich and textured, with a zesty finish of bold spice that gives way to gripping tannins right on the finish. 91 pts

Rich, with usual hints of leather & plum. Impeccable.
