Castello di Vicchiomaggio Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna la Prima 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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
