It’s been long Sonali has been cursing me for showing a laid-back attitude and not posting on our blog. Well, yes that also reveals that all the recent posts were hard work of Sonali alone. But as New Year is close, I want to break this laze ice and get going. Giving a kick start to that is this small review of an Italian wine that a very lovable couple fetched all the way from the land of cheeses and pasta and fashion, Italy. Firstly, a big thank you Riti and Bharath for the intoxicating gift. This post is dedicated to you guys and to Sonali who kept up the blog all this while.
Chianti Classico 2009 comes in an elegant black bottle that features a black label with golden and white soft fonts.
Dark ruby in colour, this Italian beauty combines all things right and rounded. It is medium bodied and well balanced. I specially liked it for its soft and clean finish and balanced acidity.
Bouquet: Rich with notes of cherries, plums, and iris.
Taste: Deep cherry and leather flavours with subtle wood notes.
-Supple tannins, good acidity, and a lingering finish.
Being red, it definitely works well with spicy food or meats.
I myself had it with white cheesy pasta on and enjoyed each bit.
