Tenuta di Lilliano Chianti Classico 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

80% Sangiovese, 20% unspecified ‘complementary’ varieties Wild yeast organic earthy, funky aromas greet the nose, though under all of that this really has a big, perfumed nose with great complexity. Edgy and wonderfully clear on the palate, this is awesome though it has some funk on the palate that will turn some people off. late arriving minerality explodes through the veil of sheer red fruits and leads to a long finish that shows real finesse and a fine edge of austerity to the tannins in the mouth. 91pts

Deep with wild berry, laurel, dried leather and nutty oak aromas on the nose that come off as being a bit stern but layered and fresh. Ripe and open in the mouth, immediately showing a really fine blend of power and transparency. The tannins are rather fine and subtle, making this very supple and drinkable with nuanced nutty oak and fresh raspberry and dark cherry fruit coming together on the palate and lingering through the long, juicy finish. A touch simple perhaps but eminently drinkable. 91pts
