Poggerino Chianti Classico 2005



Poggerino's Chianti Classico is a label I have largely forgotten about for no particular reason.  This  example drawn straight from the cellar wears its ten years of age with seemingly little effort.  Still developing rather than mature, its aromatics remind of licorice, earth and crunchy blackberries.  The palate, initially stern, warms to food and relaxes with air and heat.  It reveals similar flavours to its aromatics, an exercise in blackberry and earth.  The bottle disappeared quickly with each glass more compelling than the prior.  Decanting and warming to room temperature suggested.

Rating: Good to Very Good, Abv: 14%, Price: Not noted, Vendors: http://www.wine-searcher.com/, Website: http://poggerino-chianti-italy.com, Tasted: 2015
