    Winemaker's Notes:

    Inviting aromas of black cherries, plums and sweet spices, with notes of roses and black pepper, elegant and lush on the palate with ripe round tannins and a long finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    La Maialina’s 2007 Chianti Classico Riserva is simply beautiful. Readers will find plenty of 2007 vintage character in this soft, expansive wine. Dark fruit, leather and spices inform the supple, creamy finish. This is already fabulous; the only question is how much it might improve in the coming years. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2017.

    I love the acidity in this, with berries and tobacco leaves in the nose. Full to medium bodied with fresh acidity and a long finish. Makes you want to eat.

    Really great for the price. Little pig. No bitterness or tannin taste. Drank with dinner--very good.

    I was expecting more due to many possibly overly generous reviews, but I found it average. Not bad for the price, though.

    Big disappointment here. Suspect something not right. Fruit is over-ripe with a ""stewed"feeling. Not much complexity and nose with a trace of wet cardboard.
