San Giusto a Rentennano Trebbiano-Malvasia Blend Vin Santo del Chianti 1995

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Opening with blood, fruit and flowers on the slightly reticent nose, this turns more strawberry scented with herb and a touch of toast before tightening up over the course of the night, showing more leather and black cherry. Tight on entry, plenty of acid here and still a relatively heavy dose of wood tannin, but there is fine, fruit as well. Rusty and mineral on the back end with apple skin austerity and some leather. Rich and austere with fine wood, supported by sweetness of dried strawberry fruit on the finish and a hint of alcohol. With air this seems to lose fruit faster than structure. 88pts

This really powers out of the bottle with a nose that is dark and confected with subtle spice, wet rocks and green moss notes all draped against a backdrop of reduced cherries spread on glass to cool. With time some camphor and cigarbox join in. This is very fine in the mouth with crisp tannins supporting a fairly opulent midpalate. great acidity adds depth to the cherry/cherry pit fruit that remains razor sharp through the palate and into the finish. the lithe texture remains fresh with a feathered egde of austerity keeping this focused. Wonderful sangiovese. 2008-2020
