Clemente VII Chianti Classico Riserva 2008

Member Review by Natalia Bidasyuk:

vintage 2008. drunk on Xmas day 2013. aroma - a bit of black currants, more cherries. spices, leather and oak with a tiny drop of vanilla. much later - very sweet plum jam (made by baba Nina in a stove). aftertaste - lingering soreness of the mouth as if after eating a cherry. from others: Clemente VII Deep ruby red colour. Strong scents of fruits of the forest in the nose, well integrated with toasted scents of vanilla and spicy notes. The flavour highlights a perfect harmony due to the considerable presence of sweet tannins that make the taste velvety, with an outstanding sensation of fullness. Wine Spectator Wonderful aromas of perfumes and red berries follow through to a medium body, with ultrafine tannins and a fruity, clean finish. Focused and polished. Best from 2010 through 2015. 20,000 cases made. Score: 88. —James Suckling, 2010. Wine Enthusiast Clemente VII Chianti Classico offers very good concentration and density with aromas of leather, spice and black fruit. The structure is firm, with polished tannins. This lively Sangiovese would pair with either white or red meat. Score: 88. —Monica Larner, November 01, 2009.
