2012 Riecine Chianti Classico
Bright ruby and transparent, yet you find yourself searching the glass for a skeleton, skate-wing bones of neatly structured and delicate tannins fanning out through the fruit. Fine, focused and extremely drinkable. Drink 2015-2022
A beautiful red with delicate but rich flavors, bright acidity and an orange-peel undertone. Medium body with fine tannins and a fresh, clean, savory, salty finish. Very Burgundian. Pure Sangiovese. Drink now or hold.
17++, Mid ruby with orange tinges. Exotically spiced nose with black tea leaves and sweet red fruit that is still a little closed. Full, sweet fruit with amazingly racy acidity and lots of grainy tannins. Very long and attention grabbing. (WS).
Here’s a vibrant wine that opens with pretty aromas of blue flower, rose and berry. The savory palate doles out juicy red cherry, mint, thyme and clove alongside fresh acidity and supple tannins. It finishes on a succulent note. (KOK)
