Brolio Chianti Classico 2002 Wine Review (NW)

Black cherry and tobacco on the nose
Earthy mid-palate
A touch of cocoa on the finish

What a nice Chianti for that big, fun Italian meal! If you are preparing for just that type of evening, consider this wine. It's a notch above the average liquor store or grocery store selection and it's priced a bit higher, too, at $19. As a result, it's not a tremendous value but it's still worth considering. Raise a glass!

This winery can be traced back to the first vineyard that produced the first reconized wine, Chianti. So technically, this is the oldest wine in the world.
