From the same owner and winemakers as the illustrious Felsina Chiantis the Farnetella is a softer more accessible style of Chianti. Bright cherry raspberry and lots of spice balanced by elegant acidity. A terrific all-purpose dinner wine — serve it with pasta sausage grilled meats or mushroom risotto.

Medium ruby. Red berry, dark plum and violet aromas. Sweet, ripe and fleshy if a bit simple today, with herb-accented blackcurrant and coffee flavors. Finishes with decent length and substantial tannins that beg for food. This gained weight and sweetness with air, so Id consider decanting it a couple of hours ahead. Made by the owners of Felsina, who also own this estate, this Chianti is an interesting study in contrast with the examples from Felsina, as here there is greater use of merlot to complement the sangiovese, as well as richer, more fertile soils. The 2008 Chianti Colli Senesi is a gorgeous wine laced with expressive, varietal fruit. Made in a fresh, mid-weight style, it is best suited to near-term drinking. Flowers, licorice and tobacco linger on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2013. ** SOLD OUT **
