90 Pts. Wine & Spirits - ‘Best Buy’ April 2011: “Black and extracted when first opened, this wine needs plenty of air to move past its plumskin bitterness. There’s a sleek texture from the start, and by the time the extract retreats toward a sweet scent of apple wood smoke, the fruit begins to emerge with elegant, dark cherry flavors that last. Decant this a few hours before dinner, then serve with roast lamb."
from the winery: Rodano Chianti Classico comes from vineyards facing southwest in the Castellina district. The wine respects the tradition of Chianti Classico by aging the wine in large oak Botti. The result is wine with new world purity and old-world soul. The wine has a rich deep cherry, black fruit and fresh berry forward taste with deep wonderful structure and color. Luscious plum, cinnamon, wild strawberries with a ruddy cherry sweetness fill up this extra voluptuous and sultry Chianti Classico. The fruit is well balanced and made bright by great acidity. Elegant and lengthy in the finish. Unfined and unfiltered, to preserve every bit of the perfect Sangiovese fruit.
