Gaetano D'Aquino Chianti Riserva 2004 wine review by (PB)
Nice garnet hue with forward cherry aromas with less Sangiovese aromas than previously reviewed experiences with this wine. Light notes of licorice even rising.
Classic Chianti flavors with a touch of rustic earth and a bit of cedar but quickly over lapped by Sangiovese fruit.
This wine was $7 at Trader Joes and was a great value which is why I bought a case. You probably cannot find the 04's but the last time I was in TJ's they had the newer vintage. I have not tried that yet. This one is solid value so raise a glass and check out previous reviews on this blog of the same wine to see how it changed (or didn't) over time.
