Surprised at how soft, pretty and ready this showed. 2006 is supposed to go long in the cellar, but this was terrific now. Wild strawberry fruit, nice dusting of herbs, softly textured. Just lovely. With James and Nancy at Nice Matin.
Bel colore "genuino". Naso invitante e fresco, pieno di vita: amarene, erbe aromatiche mediterranee, spezie fini, sensazioni ematiche, carne ai ferri, terra bagnata. Bocca snella, fresca, con alta acidità. L'affinamento si nota ancora poco, può attendere in cantina ancora anni, ma mi era piaciuto di più tre anni fa quando era più giovane. Comunque sempre un bel "chianti" verace, fresco, vitale, ottimo a tavola con carne ai ferri. Pagato qualche anno fa 22 euro, oggi si aggira sui 31 euro, in definitiva forse troppo caro.
Friday Dinner at Chui Huay Lim (Chui Huay Lim): Pop and poured. Initially a bit tight, and really only opened up after 1 hour+. Appearance is clear, pale intensity, ruby colour. Legs. Nose is clean, medium- intensity, with aromas of dusty earth, toasted oak, sour red cherries. Developing. On the palate, dry, medium+ acidity, medium alcohol, medium tannins, medium body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of dusty earth, toasted oak, sour red cherries, raspberry. Medium+ finish. Lovely easy mouth-feel. Classic Tuscan Sangiovese taste. Very good quality. Can drink now, and enjoy over the next 5 years too. Sangiovese with a bit of Caniaolo and Colorino.
