2007 Frescobaldi Castiglioni Chianti DOCG
This Chianti (which happens to be 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot) was clear and clean, showing a bright ruby (with just a hint of purple) color. On the nose, I found tobacco, spice, sour cherries and cherry pit. In my mouth, the wine was not-quite-medium bodied and supple. It was juicy, with cherries, sour plum, and a little bit of the farmyard on the palate… Yum!
