Rocca delle Macie, Riserva, Chianti Classico 2006


Opened yesterday - bright, lifted aromas of red cherry, earth, shoe polish and licorice. Very attractive.

Intense middleweight with enough textural "give" to keep it from being austere. Racy finishing acidity. Nimble and expressive.
Beautiful stuff and a great antidote for "thick" wines.. Variety = spice of life.
