A Maturing Chianti Colli Sensi at a Budget Price
I believe the 2008 Montepescini, Chianti Colli Sensi Riserva is a distributor close-out, hence the low price for the vintage. This means you can drink a maturing Chianti as part of your daily routine. The aromas and flavors are actually quite good but the wine does come across as firm and controlled. Perhaps it will loosen up and improve with a bit of age. At $14 per bottle why not find out? This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.
2008 Montepescini, Chianti Colli Sensi Riserva – $14
Imported by Artisans & Vines. This wine is mostly Sangiovese with a bit of Canaiolo. Alcohol 14%. The proper nose add a little earthy and berry aromas. In the mouth are fine, slightly tense flavors of red fruit and wood. The flavors become blacker with progression until there is a controlled, ripe burst in the finish. With firm acidity and a firm finish this wine will continue to drink. ** Now – 2021.
