Melini Chianti Classico Riserva la Selvanella 2003
one dimensional. very good marachino cherry finish though....nice silky mouthfeel. not very dry which was actually refreshing on a summer's night eating meat tortellini. reminds me a lot of a full bodied pinot noir.Add winemaker's notes
External Reviews for Melini Chianti Classico Riserva la Selvanella
Melini's crowning glory is Chianti Classico La Selvanella Reserva, standard-bearer of the zone's most traditional style. The nose is complex, pervasive and elegant, its fruity notes mingling with very intense, unusual mineral and smoky sensations. The gutsy palate displays well-balanced acidity, sweet, tight-knit tannins that are never woody, and extraordinary length. The result is out of this world, perhaps the best Selvanella ever.
