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.
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.
