Castello d’Albola Chianti Classico DOCG: New Wine* Commended 2014

March 1, 2015
Castello d’Albola Chianti Classico

This is why we drink Chianti. Forget stupid dried grass covered nonsense ‘flasks’ sold by idiots in tat shops on poor advice. This is a thing of real beauty. Ruby-red tending towards garnet. Elegant, with delicate scents of violets. Well-balanced and dry, with good structure and a velvety texture. A perfect accompaniment for the richly flavoured dishes of the traditional Chianti cuisine, as well as for grilled meats and aged cheeses.
