2007 Tenuta di Nozzole Chianti Classico Riserva La Forra (Italy, Tuscany, Chianti, Chianti Classico) 9/14/2011 Eric Guido 91 The nose showed red and black berries, yet was savory as well with cured meats and hard Italian cheeses. On the palate, I found a saturating yet juicy amount of dark red fruit. The finish was long and palate coating.

External Reviews for Tenuta di Nozzole Chianti Classico Riserva
Ripe, refined cherry and red berry fruit underscored by distinct impressions of mushrooms, leather and anise lead into this wine's elegantly textured palate, set in a structure of finely tuned tannins and fresh acidity.
Good medium red. Nuanced, pretty nose of red fruits, violet and mint. Supple red cherry and red berry flavors are framed by fairly soft tannins, with a note of violet perking up the persistent finish. Well done. The 2007 Chianti Classico Riserva comes across as beautifully opulent and soft in its dark fruit, leather, licorice and spices. This voluptuous dark Chianti captures the essence of the important Tuscan vintage in its depth and long, caressing finish. Mint and flowers add higher-toned notes on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2017. Features slightly stewed fruit and plum on the nose. Full-bodied, with lots of fruit and spices that turn to an aftertaste evoking fruit pie. A jammy Chianti Classico, which like this for its opulence, though its a little atypical. Drink now. 8,335 cases made. -JS ** Only 14 in Stock **
