Villa Cafaggio Chianti Classico 2010

Villa Caffagio DOCG Chianti Classico, Italy, 2010

Natural cork closure, 13.5%, The Co-op, £13.

WSET style tasting note
Appearance – clear and bright, deep intensity ruby, showing distinct tears.

Nose – clean on the nose, with a medium (+) intensity, fully developed, with aromas of stewed red and black cherry and cherry compote, dried berry fruit, with a little kirsch, a hint of violets and a savoury nuance.

Palate – a dry wine, with medium (+) acidity, medium smooth yet drying  tannins, medium alcohol, medium body, with medium intensity flavours of black berry boiled sweets, black cherry and over-ripe black plum.  A medium length, a clean drying finish, with a slight bitterness.

Quality – a good quality wine, with balanced acidity and alcohol, which are harmonious with the intensity of flavour.  A fully developed wine of modest complexity and concentration, with stewed and dried berry fruit to the fore, on  a modest length.  It is ready to drink now, and will keep for perhaps 2-3 years but will not improve.
