Villa Cerna Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2015 Review

Chinati done well no matter the varieties involved (that are allowed of course) is always one hell of an experience, but when the blend only deals with the native Tuscan grapes it’s a true classic experience (even though French grapes have been on this land for a few centuries), and this wine is a great example of that. Rustic and elegant at the same time, with sour cherry and earth tones, along with some floral notes, this wine has a great balance of fruit depth, acidity and tannin resulting in a nice broad, round mouthfeel quenching your palate and calling for the next sip. The 5% of Colorino brings all of these characteristics into focus making this is a great wine.
