Fonterutoli Chianti Classico DOCG


Chianti Classico 2005


375ml. $23.99. 

Wine house Mazzei 2005 Chianti Classico is a truly impressive effort. A distinguished nose, bursting with dark fruit, tar, stone. This full bodied wine leaves on the palate imprints of sour cherry, charred mineral and very active, dust-like -almost effervescent- tannins. The acidity is beautifully leashed here, never getting out of control. There is a pleasant bitter cherry background, mouth drying, leading to a persistent finish supported by a dense fruit aftertaste. Perfect for a dinner for two; this half bottle’s price tag is fully justified.
