Tomaiolo Chianti Classico 1999 (wine review) by (PB)

Rather deep garnet for a Chianti with daffodil bouquet and light berry aromas.

In the mouth it is still tight after a ½ hour breathing with closed flavors. Some pepper around after 40 minutes or so of breathing. Old world style–subtle nuances of shallow fruit. After 24 hours, this wine is olivey with chocolatey foundations. All in all nothing remarkable but okay. At $15 you can do better but not bad. Raise a glass.
