L'Oca Ciuca Chianti Riserva 2008

External Review by WineExpress.com:

The L'Oca Ciuca (Drunken Goose) estate is the family property of famous Italian enologist Alberto Antonini, who has headed up winemaking at such iconic Tuscan estates as Col D'Orcia, Frescobaldi and Antinori. The estate covers 150 acres on Southwest facing slopes in the Chianti DOC. This Riserva Chianti is 90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot, made from the best selected grapes hand picked at full maturation. The wine is barrel aged for 15 months in a combination of new and used French oak barrels and it takes on an intense aroma of licorice, tobacco and black fruits. Velvety and supple on the palate with good structure.
