Tenuta di Nozzole Chianti Classico Riserva 1998

Member Review by VegasOenophile:

Wow, this wine was cellared and ai bought it cheap. It is still screamin! Nose of deep rich red berry, dark cocoa, some light spice and herb, currant, cherry and slight hints of black olive brine. Wonderful texture and big flavor that explodes onto the palate. Rich red and black berry fruit driven by cherry liquer, currant. Some dark cocoa influence with leather, cedar, sandalwood and nice herbaceous notes. Shows age as air gets into it, but it's still got great life left to it if you can find a cellared bottle. 88 pts.

Surprisingly alive given its age! Bright red fruit on the nose. Simple and subtle. The palate was a gorgeous blend of fruit and mineral, showing notes of raspberry and a touch of cranberry. Still showing well structured tannin and acid. Finished with a bit of tomato juice and black olive. Great well kept wine. 01/03/13
