Two Shot Bottles Of 1975 Chianti Classico Riserva

Recently I bought a couple of bottles of 1975 Chianti´s. Last night I thought it was time to test drive two bottles, to go along some Italian delicatessen.

1975 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Campino, Benelli
DOA - smelled like mud and tasted like it to... Only 500 bottles made and this was bottle nr 66.
50p   (tasted 2015/08)

1975 Chianti Classico Riserva, Conti Serristori
DOA - the nose high of VA and sour grapes, and the taste is all about high acidity and nothing else...
50p   (tasted 2015/08)

Just to start over with something else - what to open? Note to follow.

Earlier 1975 Chianti´s tasted - that proved to be fine...:


  1. If you where going to ask my opinion before open those Chiantis ....I would say...Keep has they are ....has a Trophy label...

    1. No, no :-) Every bottle I buy is going to be opened...
