Mantellassi Morellino di Scansano le Sentinelle Riserva 2008

Member Review by Bob Fyke:

Floral, spiced, black cherry and nice power on the nose, with aromatic wood notes and flinty Earth. Dark brambles are prominent on the palate, with black cherry extract and red raspberry notes as well. Delicious acidity, fennel, dusty tannins, and good balance fill out the rest. The finish has some length, showing cedar, dried herbs and meat, and a little bit of warmth.

Medium bodied with rusty reddish brown color. Aromatic and sweet on the nose. Nice and 'refreshing' sweetness with just a bit of light tannins. Overall is a pleasant and easy drinking. I thought at some instances, it tasted like Barolo.

Really intense, glinting ruby red colour with some garnet reflections on the sides of the glass. The nose was chocolate coffee with cherries, crushed berries and plums and hints of vanilla and licorice, reminded me a great Chianti. The mouth feel was almost perfect, chocolatey once more with a dry crisp note on the end, the finish was clean, a little short but the wine was dessert like and very enjoyable. I'm drinking this at a perfect age, so drink today. 90 Points (SN - 05/08)
