๐Ÿ™ˆ tasting 6th wine
at wset level 2 course (6th meeting)
the class subject was ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น
four reds were poured

my guess was that it'll probably be nebbiolo, barbera, sangiovese and amarone. i came close.

besides the one with appassimento treatment guessing what is each one is far behind my tastebuds (for now ๐Ÿ˜Š)

meat, tobbaco, ripe raspberry and almond ๐Ÿ‘ƒ

high acidity.
high tannins.
medium body.

dried fruit, mint and some black fruit. marvelous ๐Ÿ‘„

medium ๐ŸŽฏ

classic and delicious.

Great mid of dry and fruitiness. Easy to drink.

Definitely boozy. Tannins that fade extremely quick. Both red and black fruit. Shows the cab/merlot blend in an obvious way but fits in well. Tart. Clean. I personally think it would pair well with something a little bit meatier like a Florentine steak.

Just when i was about to throw in the towel on chiantis, this one pulls me back in...a rare, well balanced blend of dark fruits, some background spice, and earthiness that finishes smooth and lengthy...

Already itโ€™s mellowed out and has a lot of fruit showing. Itโ€™s going to be even better in another few years.
