Cristino Aleatico 2016

Delectable Wine
9.4

Luminous red. Aromas of wild strawberry, red cherry, cinnamon, vineyard peach, and pink flowers. A sweet explosion of floral red fruits and sweet spices follows through in the rich, suave mouth, firmed by a suggestion of orchard fruit pit. Penetrating and perfumed on the very sweet (240g/L r.s.) and very long finish. Remarkably well balanced (the extremely high but harmonious 9.8g/L total acidity allows this super-sweet to convey a very light on its feet quality), this wine from the beautiful but little-known island of Capraia off the Tuscan coast is an absolute knockout. Made from organically farmed grapes air-dried for 14 days. Will work equally well with a plum crumble or a chocolate cake. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, October 2017) — a year ago

Toscana Rosato 2013

Big nose of ripe black and dried red cherries, baked strawberry and black currant, heady lavender, dried roses, Belgian chocolate, light dusting of espresso, cinnamon, tobacco, cedar and licorice dust. Medium mouthfeel, plunges through sweet oak spices of nutmeg, vanilla, dried bing cherry, dried lavender, sage, muted mint, black pepper, burnt beef, off-ripe blackberry, black currant, tar, baker’s chocolate, espresso oils, gum Arabic, cranberry and basil. Immense and teetering on decadent. #TenutaDiCapraia #granselezione #chiantickassico #chianti #tuscany #rosso #italianwines — 8 months ago
