Melini Chianti Borgha d'Elsa 2009

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Therersquo;s cherry and licorice on the nose of this crisp, lighter-style wine. Bright, tart fruit and cocoa accents follow on the palate, and itrsquo;s bright and moderately tannic on the finish. A good pizza-pasta partner, this will even out over the next 12 months and drink well through 2004.

Bright and peppery, a soft red.

Bright and gentle, this peppery red feels ripe and soft. It has the spicy bite of pepperoncini to match a charry, thin-crusted pizza.

This medium-bodied red offers sweet plum on the nose, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Drink now.

If you think that Chianti is a big, heavy wine, be prepared to be surprised. Melini is an old (founded in 1705) and respected Tuscan estate, and renowned winemaker Nunzio Capurso has crafted a soft, smooth and most enjoyable Chianti. Enjoy with pasta, pizza or sharp provolone.
