Castello di Albola Chianti Classico 2016 - 1.5 Litre
Ruby-red in colour, advancing to garnet, this wine is bursting with notes of strawberry, red berries, sage, spice cake and subtle earth on the nose. It is vibrant and medium-bodied, revealing lively cherry and exotic spice and leading to polished tannins and a delicate finish.
91 Points - Wine Spectator Compact for now, this shows ripe cherry, plum and strawberry flavours that offset the solid tannins, with fine harmony. A lingering finish echoes the fruit, adding earth, tobacco and iron notes.
90 Points - James Suckling A firmer style of Chianti Classico with dark cherry, orange peel and stone character. Medium body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Linear and fresh in the end.
