Nozzole Chianti Classico Riserva Italy 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine shows crisp, ripe red berry and cherry fruit flavors and aromas sustained by a fresh, acidic note offset by classic Sangiovese notes of earth, mushrooms and leather, with an elegant tannic backbone.

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

This is wiry and lean on the nose. It smells like rocks smashing together over a basket of wild herbs, dandelion greens and wild arugula while chewing on a hand rolled cigarette and some strawberries. Believe it or not, that smells pretty good. On the palate there is marginally less excitement, with a rather tight if seamless and smooth entry that is followed by rich ripe fruit. There’s a touch of pruniness to the fruit here,and lots of dried berry tones. A fine mineral edge and some raspberry and spice notes pop on the rather effusive, fairly tannic finish. This really finishes strongly. Very impressive and most likely in need of a little time to show its best. 91pts

Black pepper and smokey aromas. Extremely smooth, juicy, with minimal tannins

Delicate barrel aromas, with vegetative herbs and mountain fruits. Very well-rounded nose. The mouth is acidic and the wood flavors come across strong on the finish. Nothing overpowering.
