Melini Borghi d'Elsa Chianti 2010 Wine Review (NW)
Cherry and violets on the nose
Medium bodied on the palate
Silky but simple finish of cherry and dried herbs
I'm a bit disappointed with this wine. It received some critical acclaim as a value priced Chianti that stands out from the pack, but I just don't see it. It tastes like every other Tuscan wine in the under $10 category. There's nothing that stands out, save perhaps the somewhat silky finish. Expect to pay around $9, but raise a glass of something else.
