2006 Castello di Farnetella Chianti

Sipped on the 2006 Castello di Farnetella, Chianti Colli Senesi while munching on a plate of pasta and checking out all of the tornado activity throughout Kansas, Oklahoma and Missouri. Rather deep color for this blend of 92% Sangiovese and 8% Merlot. Nose revels tart cherry fruit, hickory smoke, moderate fennel seed and a dusty herbaceous quality. The palate is lean and acidic with more tart cherry fruit and substantial tannins. Really needs food to balance the tart flavors and astringent texture. About $15
