  • Chianti Classico Riserva D.o.c.g " la Selvanella" Casa Vinicola Melini 2006


    Dark ruby hue with an orange rim, and black plum, spice and dark chocolate aromas; leads to tart black-fruit and spicy oak flavors, with integrated, warm tannins and and a pleasingly long finish of acidity and sweet, wet wood. Read More

  • Melini Chianti San Lorenzo 2010


    Very nice notes of bitter almond and sage frame the core of lightly jammy red currant fruit. This is a bit soft in the mouth, quite fruity and rich in a very clean style. Its a nice enough wine but I would like to see a bit more detail. Though the acid does rise through the fruit on the palate, it never really breaks through, lending this a slig... Read More

  • Melini Sangiovese Blend Chianti Borghi d'Elsa 2010


    Seems a bit dumb on the nose, showing some bitter almond and green strawberry notes. On the palate this is not the most expressive, but boy is it well balanced and lively without being lean. Round and smooth with simple cherry and strawberry fruits, delivered with nice richness and really attractive structural balance. This is absolutely gluggab... Read More

  • Melini Terrarossa Chianti Classico 2008


    Faint on the nose and a bit hard with dusty soil tones, hints of dried flowers, dried orange peel and some raspberry fruit. Very smooth entry, this has barely any tannin and just enough acid to keep things lively in the mouth. A bit featureless in fact, with pleasant fruit and acid that does pop on the back end, lifting the wild cherry, cherry p... Read More

  • Melini Granaio Chianti Classico 2008


    This is fairly intense and distinctly fruity on the nose with a certain plumminess to the fruit and soft, cedary cigarbox and toasted almond wood notes. Smells a bit like Merlot. Fairly bright on entry with a nice, smooth leading edge that is followed by round but present tannins and juicy acidity. The fruit is slightly indistinct, rather fruit... Read More

  • Vigneti la Selvanella Chianti Classico Riserva. Melini 2006


    This is surprisingly citrussy on the nose with early lemon oil and peach notes that are covered fairly quickly by more typical, if unusually bright and fruity, notes of red cherry and raspberries. The nose hints at leather and herb notes but is particularly about fruit today. With time, this does turn a bit funkier, more leathery, slightly nutty... Read More

  • Melini Sangiovese Blend Chianti Borghi d'Elsa 2010


    Always a solid choice, often seen on wine lists. Rich, dark fruit, not too acidic, with a minerally cocoa taste reminiscent of Ovaltine, or is that Tootsie Roll? Read More

  • Melini Sangiovese Blend Chianti Borghi d'Elsa 2010


    A little red and black pepper on the nose, scrumptious fruit, brighter on the palate, lighter bodied and easy to drink. Read More
