A few rustic Chianti's on the deck @boccacciocellars today! The same, but, different to the Isole wines from a couple of weeks ago.
2013 Chianti Classico looking raw, needs time to settle. Some chewing texture demanding food.
2012 Chianti Classico Riserva, a hard edge, structure supported by a splash in some new oak. Solid core of fruit and some funk. Again one to watch.
2013 Il Poggio a density not present in the others. Fruit depth handling the oak beautifully. Refined texture, plenty of yumminess! Can't wait for the 2012 ... Birth year wine for my first!
