The 2007 la Castellina Classico is the first Chianti I've ever tasted, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect (I normally drink Cabernet or Shiraz). A bright red hue with a mild fruity scent, this wine offers the acidity of a white wine with just a hint of the tannins found in fuller-bodied red wines. It delivers bright, focused fruit flavors with a dash of oak and finishes with the tarty sweetness of slightly under-ripe cherries. While I tend to prefer the depth and richness of bigger red wines, this one grew on me as I drank and kept me coming back for more.

Winemaker's Notes:

Dominated by fruity notes among which marionberry, cherry and red-bay fruits can clearly be distinguished. Among secondary and tertiary aromas, well harmonised scents of oak and spiced notes typical of Sangiovese emerge, especially pepper and cinnamon. www.lacastellina.it "Ruby-purple. Pleasant bouquet of violets, ripe blackberries, grape jam, and toasted sesame seeds. Ripe, extracted berry flavors ride the zippy acidity to a weighty finish marked by licorice, floral tones, and a hint of basil. A blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo..." SWJ 07/10
