2003 Castello D'Albola Chianti Classico

This one was right about $10, which is somewhat low for a Classico, but I figured I'd give it a shot.

Earth and plum on the nose.

Cherry, earth, blackberry, plum, smokey oak, spice, and that good ol’ funk that is in most Chiantis. A touch of sweetness, and lots and lots of acid make food a requirement for this.

The finish fades quickly and starts with some cherry but fades to spice...cinnamon mainly.

Not a wine I’d say should be consumed by itself, but it would make almost any type of Italian faire taste better.
