Tasting Notes                         

90+   2007  Felsina  Chianti Classico Riserva  10/24/10 ($26)

  13.5% alc
Color: Medium deep garnet. (3.0) Bouquet: Sweet, dried cherries with excellent acidity, yet also smooth and well-balanced. (3.0) Body: Solid middleweight with forceful, tart acidity supporting excellent fruit. (3.0) Flavor: Sweet/tart, racy cherry fruit comes through with some cedar thrown in. (3.0) Finish: Parallels flavor, but fruit not quite as forward. Elegant fruit and cedar linger. (3.0)
Overall: Not as rich and fruity as the '06, but more racy with high acidity propelling lean, yet delicious cherry fruit. There ain't no fat on them bones! Classic CC Riserva. Felsina has been Right On Target with this wine in recent years. (15.0)
