Fattoria del Cerro Sangiovese Blend Chianti Colli Senesi 2005
This wine was really good the first night opened but on the second and third night was not as good. Overall decent bottle of wine.

The second Italian wine I really loved. Very strong finish with robust oak and earth tones. May be too strong for some, but if you like character...
External Reviews for Fattoria del Cerro Sangiovese Blend Chianti Colli Senesi
The 2004 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano takes things to another level with its densely packed, richer personality. It offers superb weight on the palate in a riper style than the Rosso, with excellent length and finessed tannins. This blend of 90% Prugnolo Gentile and 10% Canaiolo Nero and Mammolo was aged for two years in a combination of Slavonian oak casks and French oak barrels. It will offer highly pleasurable drinking to at least age 12. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2016
Wine Advocate ReviewThe 2005 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is an accessible, straightforward wine with perfumed dark red fruit that blossoms on the palate with an attractive inner juiciness. Made in a somewhat restrained style, it is best enjoyed over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2011.Wine Tasting NotesIt has a vivid ruby red color and good concentration. Intense fragrant aroma with evident fruity notes among which wild black cherry, violet and vanilla. Full balanced flavor with noticeable but discreet tannic component. Can be served with appetizing first courses with meat and mushroom sauces, grilled meats and roasted white meats and medium aged cheese.
