Fattoria Casabianca Chianti Colli Senesi Riserva 2005

Member Review by jtryka:

The color is a bit darker than your traditional Chianti, but somewhat lighter than your typical big bold cabs that have been pouring out of California the last decade or so. The nose is very interesting, with notes of rich, dark fruit, a good bit of licorice and some lovely dried herbs. The taste was a complete divergence from the nose, as you expect some ripe fruit up front, but instead you are treated to some wonderful tart cherry notes that transitions effortlessly to some lovely dried herbs, leather and anise midpalate. The finish is quite nice, as the structured tannins support a long, dry finish that seems to last until you're ready to take your next sip!
