Carpineto Chianti Classico 2011


Carpineto have fashioned quite a good Chianti Classico here.  Made principally from sangiovese grapes, the wine has a medium intensity ruby colour in the glass.  Its aromatics are developing, with expressions of cedar, plum, earth, mulberry, dark olive, anise and smoke.  The palate is dry with medium to high tannins that are mostly fine grained if a bit drying, a full body, high acid and flavours of plum, mulberry and dark olives, with a touch of bitterness on the medium length finish.  This is quite a moreish wine that pleases for the price.  Good
