2008 Valiano Chianti Classico mini review

Dark in color with a mild nose. On the mid pallet the wine displays some light red berries. The wine is on the lighter side of medium in finish with some tannins. This is definitely a milder Chianti. I would give it an 88 or so.

Tasting Note
Full-bodied Chianti Classico, with lots of ripe fruit and a milk chocolate and dark cherry character. Full and velvety. Drink now. Score – 90. (James Suckling, jamessuckling.com, Aug. 17, 2011)
