Castello d'Albola Chianti Classico 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes<br/>An uncomplicated, easy drinking entry level Chianti Classico. Offers a medium red ruby color and a perfumed light cherry nose with touches of toast. The wine finishes soft with round tannins and dry sweet fruit flavors. Well-balanced and dry, with good structure and a velvety texture. It is a perfect accompaniment for the richly-flavored dishes of the traditional Chianti cuisine, as well as for grilled meats and mature cheeses.

Purchased at Binny's, 12/2016. This bottle was opened at Power's Italian dinner night. This vintage was not much different than the 2009 I consumed a couple of years ago. For a classico there was just middle of the road talent in this bottle.

Situated in Radda in Chianti, the heart of the Chianti Classico DOCG appellation, where grape cultivation has a legacy dating back to the time of the Etruscans. In the 15th century, the Acciaiuoli family commissioned Castello d'Albola to plant the highest vineyard in Chianti Classico because it was perceived as a symbol of status. Over the centuries, many noble Tuscan families have owned the property and the estate has earned many accolades for its wines. In 1979, the Zonin family acquired Castello d'Albola promising to uphold the estate's excellence for future generations. Castello d'Albola wines have earned the iconic "Gallo Nero" symbol from the Chianti Classico Wine Consortium that guarantees the highest winemaking standards. - Winery
