Castelli del Grevepesa 2010 Clemente VII Chianti Classico Riserva

An impressive Reserva that offers an increasing level of depth and verve. A classical note of leather ties together aromas of rusty iron and sandalwood. A hefty dose of gritty tannins keeps the fresh dark fruit in check, and an element of burnt sage opens into the finish. A well balanced but muscular bottling of Chianti.

From the Castelli del Grevepesa Cooperative in Lamole, an important town in the Classico region. Curiously, this wine is named after Clemente VII, the first antipope, who resided in Avignon, France.
