Castello di Vicchiomaggio Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna la Prima 2010

Editorial Review by Snooth Editorial:

Light earth and mushroom notes on the nose with savory balsamic vinegar fruit aromas of raspberry, strawberry and red currant. Perfectly balanced in the mouth with bright cherry and strawberry fruit, a hint of fresh herb and delicate flowers with refreshing acidity and silky tannins in total harmony. An impressive wine with age potential and excellent approachability today. 94 pts

Leather, herbs, granite and blackcurrant come together on a beautiful nose with lots of spice accents and a bit of wood that feels out of place here Smooth and polished in the mouth with some very deep, sIightly extracted dark berry fruit showing red currant notes up front and on the palate then this lightens up nicely with more red cherry fruit that is showing a bit of astringency on the backend before wrapping up in a short finish. The wood is just slightly distracting here though this shows lovely fruit. 89pts
