Rocca di Castagnoli – Poggio a’Frati 2013 – Chianti Classico Riserva

The nose is structured, very finely tight, well-built and offers precision. The wine needs to be decanted. It reveals notes of cassis, blackberry and wild berries associated with small notes of garrigue, fresh red berries, spices as well as touches of dark chocolate / cocoa, violet and a discreet hint of gray pepper. The palate is juicy, fresh, fruity, well-balanced and offers a beautiful juicy / acid frame, a good volume, a nice minerality, a very fine suavity, a fine freshness, a good guideline, gourmandise, a fine concentration as well as a good definition. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy / juicy redcurrant, fresh cherry and small notes of raspberry / juicy raspberry associated with touches of cassis as well as discreet touches of blueberry, colas, black olive and subtle hints of spices.
