Lamole Di Lamole Chianti Classico 2004 Blue Label wine review by (PB)

This Tuscan value wine is aged 9 months in barriques and on pouring is a very pretty purple wine with fresh, wild cherry aromas floating upward with a cherry candy element. It reminds me of the old Luden's wild cherry cough drops. With even five minutes of air, a licorice layer is evident; I am impressed.

In the mouth the wine is a little tight on opening but opens with a nice licorice note on wild cherry flavors. This was a really nice Chianti and brings great memories as we traveled through and ate in Lamole Italy a few years back. I think I paid a mere $12 for this wine on sale. I wish I had bought more! Raise a glass!
