Tenuta di Nozzole Chianti Classico Riserva has crisp, ripe, red berry and cherry aromas and flavors and earthy undernotes are shaped by vibrant, fresh acidity and a backbone of firm yet elegant tannins.
Pairs well with meats and meat pasta sauces, poultry and hard cheeses.
The 2009 Chianti Classico Riserva Nozzole is a big, dark wine bursting with dark cherries, licorice, tobacco, smoke and dried flowers. This hearty, full-bodied Riserva is long on personality and sheer character. There isn’t a ton of subtlety, but readers looking for a hearty, robust Chianti will find much to like. As good as this is today, the wine could use another few years to shed some of its baby fat. This is a terrific showing from Nozzole. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
