Giacomo Mori Chianti 2008
The 2008 Chianti is a fabulous wine. There is nothing showy here; just gorgeous varietal red fruit intermingled with floral, spiced notes in a fresh, accessible style. The inner sweetness and sheer purity of the fruit add up to an absolutely delicious wine that is impossible to resist. A friendly price tag makes this is a terrific choice for a house wine or by the case purchase. The estate's Chianti is predominantly Sangiovese with a dash of Colorino and Canaiolo, and is aged in oak. Readers who enjoy traditionally made wines will flip out over Mori's Chianti in 2008.
