Affordable bottle age with the 2009 Dievole, Chianti Classico


There is good value to be had in Tuscany and the 2009 Dievole, Chianti Classico is one such example.  Hints of bottle age come out on the nose which is reflected in the moderately complex flavors which show best after an hour of air.  Priced at $13 per bottle this is a solid weekday wine which you may drink over the next few years.  This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.

2009 Dievole, Chianti Classico – $13
Imported by Pasternak.  Alcohol 14.1%.  The nose smells mature with an attractive pencil lead aromas.  The moderate complexity continues in the mouth with dark cherry then dry black fruit.  There is a good balance between the tannins and juicy acidity.  This is a solid wine, grippy, with a dry finish that is perhaps a touch short.  **(*) Now – 2019.
