Tenuta di Nozzole Chianti Classico Riserva 2007
Nozzole Chianti Classico Riserva La Forra is a wine of impressive concentration and depth, with an intense, aromatic fragrance of black fruit, leather and woodsy notes. On the palate, rich, ripe fruit is set in a firm tannic structure which is balanced, mellow and integrated. The full, complex finish confirms the palate, suggesting extended longevity.
Bright red sour cherry fruit with dark tea and currants some dried earth components. Lovely palate nice berry fruit nice acidity. Very solid
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
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 **
