Review: Carpineto – Chianti Classico Riserva (2009)

Chianti Classico Riserva from Carpineto

The Wine Review:

 

Aroma: Clear oakiness on the nose and I also get a distinct whiff of glue?

Taste: Cassis and red fruit. Cherries with a backdrop of liquorice. The wine starts off light but the fruit, oak and tannins come on strong at the end. The flavours escalate like a crescendo. Tannins quite sticky, probably could use more time in the cellar.

Pretty good but very different to what I’m used to.
