Good value Chianti Classico from Podere Il Palazzino


Just a quick post for today to let you know I am still drinking wine despite spending vast amounts of time researching and writing.  The 2010 Podere Il Palazzino, Argenina, Chianti Classico is made from fruit sourced from vineyards with more clay.  These soils and upbringing result in a brighter wine.  This vintage certainly was but it still has a definite structure.  It is a good wine but I would spend the extra $2 for the 2007 Podere Il Palazzino, La Pieve, Chianti Classico Riserva.  The fruit for this wine comes from vines located on stones and sandy soils.  With a deep, meaty nose and expansive flavors infused with herbs there is a lot to like about this wine.  I did enjoy drinking it but the wine is young and best left to age.  It is a good wine for the price and one that deserves to be in your cellar or fridge.  These wines were purchased at MacArthur Beverages.

2010 Podere Il Palazzino, Argenina, Chianti Classico – $17
Imported by deGrazia Imports.  This wine is a Sangiovese blend that is fermented in stainless steel then aged in small oak casks.  There was a subtle nose of dark fruits.  In the mouth there were black fruit flavors tinged with minerals.  The ripe middle became drier towards the finish.  The wine had a lighter framed structure with drying tannins.  ** Now-2018.

2007 Podere Il Palazzino, La Pieve, Chianti Classico Riserva – $19
Imported by deGrazia Imports.  This wine is a Sangiovese blend that is fermented in concrete vats then aged for 18 months in oak barriques.  The nose was more meaty with plum and hints of raisins.  In the mouth were deep, meaty black fruit flavors whose dryness matched the very fine, drying tannins. The wine was riper at first then became drier with extended air.  There were ample notes of herbs and roast before the expansive finish and aftertaste.  Lots of herbs!  **(*) Now-2020.
