2010 Chianti Classico Ama, Castello di Ama

Opened this youngster the other day to go with some chicken and root vegetables.

2010 Chianti Classico Ama, Castello di Ama
A young, seedy nose that takes some time to open up in the glass. When it does notes of ripe red cherries, blueberry bushes, rosemary and a warm Tuscan gravel road appears. Cool and fine. Very young.
The taste is young and tight with notes of red cherries, red currants, dry licorice, hebs and gravel. Even after it has had some time in the glass it displays a restrained character. Very good but I will hide the remaining bottles from myself for at least 5 years.
88p   (tasted 2014/10)
