Castello di Meleto Chianti Classico 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Deep slightly inky and ashy on the nose, coming off as a bit petite sirah style. Inky and pencil lead on entry lead to a soft, big, not very interesting mouthfeel. While this is packed with lots of fruit, a bit dark with notes of boysenberry, and shows some good mineral tones in the mouth, though this lacks a bit of liveliness on the palate. Seems atypical. 87pts

Hervorragender Chianti der modernen Art. Reiche Nase mit Noten von Veilchen, Kirschen und Brombeeren, Rauchnoten, viel satte Frucht, sehr konzentriert, saftig und mit guten Tanninen.

Der Chianti Classico «Viticcio» duftet fein nach Veilchen und getrockneten Rosen. Geschmacklich frisch und gut zugänglich, weist er eine gewisse Tiefe auf und offenbart zarteste Tannine. Ein Wein der Geselligkeit und Freundschaft.

Intensely fruity nose with crushed raspberries and plums. Full-bodied, with loads of fruit and velvety tannins. This is exceptional for the vintage. Ama sets the high water mark for quality

Wine Tasting NotesDeep intense ruby color. Fine and intense bouquet rich, with notes of brushwood fruit (bilberry, blackberry) and noble woods. Perfect with game, aged cheese and red meat.
