Familia Cara Chianti Classico Riserva 2003 wine review by (PB)

Classic Sangiovese bouquet with fresh red berry notes and slight vegetal hints and subtle milk chocolate.

In the mouth it is tight and thin. Might need to air out. With some breathing it opens a bit but this wine never quite gets there.

For the $18 price tag, it was way over priced (Sam's Club) and the Familia Cara standard Chianti for less than half the price is a much better value. Raise a glass of that.

Paid only $9.26 at Seattle Sam's club.
