Sangiovese is a favourite of mine from the simple Italian table wines
up to the aged Chiantis it is wine that really appeals to me in a
similar way to Pinot Noir.
This bottle seemed to be very good value from Asda online. Indeed even
just a cursory glance at any major wine retailer will demonstrate that
a Chianti Classico Riserva 2004 is usually worth in excess of £20.
Chianti Classico is a DOCG denominated region and is a sub region of
Chianti and must display the black rooster( Gallo Nero!)The DOCG is
governed by strict principles that the wines must adhere to. This
makes them extremely good quality wines.

Add Chianti Classico Riserva 2004
Aged for 38 months in barrels this is a perfumed and elegant wine with
tarry tobacco savoury notes with an aromatic sandalwood effect.
On the palate it is light, balanced and smooth with cherry fruit
flavours and a long long finish.
Highly recommended
£8.99 from Asda supermarket
