CASTELGREVE CHIANTI CLASSICO RISERVA 2009

Dark in color with a nose of dried fruits. On the mid pallet the wine matches the nose with lovely dried fruits coming through. Not quite raisin but close. On the medium length finish the wine displays some lovely dry notes along with some tannins. On it’s own the wine has some lovely deep rich notes, add food and it dials down nicely. We paired it with a BBQ salmon and it went very well. Lovely wine. I would give it a solid 89. Yumm. And it ought to keep for a good 2-5 years …
