San Felice Chianti Classico 2010 Wine Review (NW)
Nose opens with cherry accompanied by earthy notes
Full bodied on the palate
Decent depth on the finish with cherry, red currant, and herbs
This is a fairly straight-forward Chianti Classico at a reasonable price of $15 or so. It has a profile of red fruit with some savory notes that create depth and richness. In fact, as a young non-reserve wine it's better than the San Felice Chianti Classico Riserva 2008 which I recently had. Enjoy with hearty Italian fare, and raise a glass!
