From the Cellar: Santa Cristina Chianti Superiore 2011 – $$$
Dark plum red colour, tending tawny. 13% alc.
A bouquet that is rich and opulent and savoury. Scents of dates, cardboard and spice, and fusty dark fruits.
In the mouth the wine tastes rich, ripe and full. Concentrated fruit, quite chewy. A delicious spicy finish, with a tannic rasp at the back of my throat, and drying. Very long.
