Labarinto Chianti 2010
Lovely and bright, with juicy dark cherry and blackberry fruit, and is a totally uncomplicated easy-drinking wine for every day.
Chianti Classico 2009
Very full and soft, intense in both fruit and savoury notes, but is one of the most balanced and elegant from the 2009 vintage.
Bugialla Riserva 2007
Avery dense yet delicate and complex nose, with black fruits and some walnut characters, is very expressive but also structured and textural. It is however still very young and needs at least two more years to soften a little.
An IGT blend, of 50% sangiovese and 50% merlot coming from a different vineyard lower in the valley. Whilst an excellent wine is not what I consider to be particularly inspiring. It shows great balance and composure, with texture and focus, but shows as very young and not really expressive at the moment.
