2007 Chianti Classico
Today’s Petronius Wines 2007 Chianti Classico, upon first pour, is a bit shy and reserved. But after giving it a chance to open up, boy, does it really spring to life!
If you love Chianti, this 96 Pointer is everything you could hope for. This wine is classically robust, with dark aromas and bright, delicious flavors that delight the senses. There is an Old World earthiness to this lovely wine that will continue to reward sip after sip. An easy and flexible companion for many foods, this wine would pair well with a creamy Fettuccine Alfredo with pancetta or an assortment of hard cheeses.
But act fast, because with only a limited availability on this Chianti, it won’t last long!
Deep and dark with a crimson body and a slightly opaque heart. Legs take a while to emerge, before taking on a slow-moving plumpness.
Woodsy and loaded with dark fruit, this wine really smoothes out as you allow it to breathe. Once it opens up, it reveals black cherry, red cherry, dusty barnyard, leather, spice and oak.
Very earthy, with briar patch, underripe plum, red cherry, and bright tart red fruit in the lead. Allow the wine to open, and it reveals subtle dark stone fruit, leather and soft spice.
A long and lingering finish with a tart sweetness and fruit that slowly fades while tannins spread a soft dryness to the cheeks and lips.
A fabulous food wine, we recommend pairing this with a creamy Fettuccine Alfredo with pancetta or an assortment of hard cheeses.
