2015 Fattorie Parri Chianti Montespertoli Riserva

Tuscan is a word used with little authenticity by many from aspirational real estate agents to cafe menu writers. If you want a real taste of the place, buy a bottle of this. It’s a bit rurally rustic yet pastel jumper draped over the shoulders suave at the same time. There’s a sour cherry, walnut like, dusty road element to good Sangiovese from between Florence and Sienna. Frequently so savoury and austere yet fruit rich. This has an extra liquorice concentration that pulls long and freshly satisfying. If one of wine’s purposes is to be representative of a place, this succeeds.

14% alcohol. Diam. $30 worth of great value from those wallet friendly chaps at Boccaccio Cellars.

94 points.
