Melini Granaio Chianti Classico 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This is fairly intense and distinctly fruity on the nose with a certain plumminess to the fruit and soft, cedary cigarbox and toasted almond wood notes. Smells a bit like Merlot. Fairly bright on entry with a nice, smooth leading edge that is followed by round but present tannins and juicy acidity. The fruit is slightly indistinct, rather fruity and dark, with a plummy aspect cut by some strawberry and beef blood notes. The finish is more red currant toned with a nice interplay between the red fruits and the firm little tannins. 87pts

Ruby red color; an intense and complex perfume, with strong, fruity notes (fruits of the forest and ripe dark grapes) and elegant touches of vanilla, irises and violets; and a clean fruity aftertaste, with notes of preserves and almonds. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
