Tasting Note                         

92  2010  Felsina  Chianti Classico Riserva   10/11/14 ($28)

  14% alc
Color: Deep black cherry garnet. (3.0) Bouquet: Almond-vanilla nuggat and sweet black cherry fruit complemented by elegant cigarbox. (3.0) Body: Solid middleweight with outstanding balance of fruit, acidity and smooth tannins underneath. Silky mouthfeel. (3.5) Flavor: Parallels bouquet, but even silkier and more delicious. (3.5) Finish: Not quite as expressive as the flavor, but long and tasty. Minerality lingers. (3.0)
Overall: A beautiful Riserva with rich almond-vanilla nuggat and sweet black cherry fruit accompanied by elegant cigarbox. Silky mouthfeel. Might become even more expressive with a few years bottle age, but smooth and delicious now. So, no need to wait. (16.0)
