The 2006 Nozzole Chianti Classico Riserva is composed of 100% Sangiovese and was aged for 12 months in large Slavonian oak caks.
On the nose I get aromas of black cherry, cranberry, cinnamon, leather, oak, and spice. There are just secondary hints of earth and chocolate that develop when the wine opens up in the glass.
On the palate the wine expresses flavors of cranberry, black cherry, leather, and spice. It's a classic Chianti Classico that is rather simple in it's complexities, but shows great balance and is stylistically representative of the region. The perfect pasta wine indeed.....88+ points
