    Winemaker's Notes:

    Ruby red tending to garnet color. The aromas are fine, with delicate hints of violets. The taste is balanced, dry and well-structured with a velvety mouthfeel.

    It goes well with traditional dishes rich in flavor, and with grilled meats and cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Shows a nice lashing of new oak, featuring concentrated cherry, black currant, licorice and leather flavors augmented by tobacco and spice. Taut and long.

    Excellent chianti. As good as the 2007s and ready to drink.

    We actually visited Castello D'Albola in August and this was our preferred wine, even liked it better than the Riserva. Nice dark garnet hue, classic Sangiovese taste. Probably score between 88-90 for this vintage.
