External Reviews for Fattoria del Cerro Chianti Colli Senesi
The 2007 Chianti Colli Senesi (Sangiovese, Canaiolo) is a new offering from one of Montepulcianorsquo;s leading properties. The wine is made in a rich, fruit-driven style with the impeccable balance that is the signature of the estatersquo;s more important bottlings. This bold, cask-aged Chianti should continue to drink beautifully over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2009ndash;2012.
The 2008 Chianti Colli Senesi bursts from the glass with an array of dark fruit, minerals and leather. This is an especially dark, vibrant Chianti that could use another few months in bottle to come together, although it is already pretty elegant. The Chianti Colli Senesi is 90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo aged in cask. Anticipated maturity: 2011ndash;2013.
A light and fragrant red wine, eclectic and easy to drink. It has a very vivid ruby red colour with slight purplish hues. The aroma is fruity with hints of wild black cherry, cherry and a delicate balsamic and herbal finish. The flavour is soft and however full bodied and with good persistence. It is optimum with appetizing first course dishes with meat and mushroom sauces, veal stews and roast chicken. - Winery
