No. 36 Bottesola Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2016

It’s a bit unsettling to see the last-& only—previous review was literally from last year & by one day, but also by….me. I guess that’s the definition of an echo chamber. That said, this wine is still in a dark & brooding stage, very powerful, pretty tightly coiled & with this very cool creosote/ petrol dimension, with all kinds of mint, sage & brambly bits. Like sitting with a very somber but good friend, & doesn’t need much from you. I love that friend, & I love this wine. At about 25$ it’s an insult to call it a QPR, because it’s that profoundly good. Oh, & just more proof positive that the ‘16 vintage in Italy was off the charts. Paired post meal, but very much a food wine. — 2 months ago

Viacosta Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2013

Decant of some time necessary to bring it all together. Was a hit w me but not my drinking partner: old school tobacco, dried cherries, fine tannins; medium bodied. Lets say a food wine given its acidity, though that balances out w decant. He thought shrill and musty but did improve w air. Polaner imports. — 6 years ago

Classic Sangiovese. Very nice cherries and berry flavors on the front with a relaxing soft finish. Worth the restaurant markup. — 9 years ago
