Tenuta Di Renieri Chianti Classico 2010, Italy

image

My Rating 78 Points.
Price $22.

Light brick in color with an orange tint and light intensity.

Mild on the nose with cherries, plums, strawberries, cranberries, oak, light licorice, vanilla, earth, forest floor and black pepper.

Medium bodied with high acidity and great legs.

Tart on the attack and dry on the palate with cherries, strawberries, plums, pomegranate, toasted oak, licorice, minerals, spices, dirt and peppercorn.

Long, tart finish with smooth, round tannins, peppercorn and tart cherries.

This six-year-old Chianti, is made from 100% Sangiovese, and is a little unbalanced by itself, but it went well with an Italian chicken dish. Too Light for my taste, though.

Aged for 12 months in oak barrels.

14% alcohol by volume.
