Tasting- Castello Sonnino Chianti Montespertoli

Sonnino-Chianti

Name: Castello Sonnino Chianti Montespertoli

Variety: Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Trebbiano and Malvasia

Region: Chianti

Country: Italy

Year: 2010

Price: $15

Winery Notes: A blend of Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Trebbiano and Malvasia del Chianti. Rich and modern, with a dark, saturated color and aromas of graham cracker and lemon rind. A juicy palate packed with plum and raspberry is carried by a creamy texture that’s rather toasty in terms of flavor. The finish is round, full and chocolaty.

My Notes: This wine had a fruity, open nose. It had a weird taste I couldn’t place but was also dry with high tannins and very bright on the palate.

I did not have this with food.
