Fattoria di Petroio, Lenzi, Chianti Classico 2011

This ripe, plush and delicious wine comes from the hot 2011 Tuscan vintage. The wine is made from 90% Sangiovese and 10% Colorino/Malvasia Nero grown on a particularly rocky site. The bouquet shows notes of black cherry, flint, black truffles, licorice and dusty oak. The palate is full bodied with soft tannins and a luscious, long mouthfeel. Drinking beautifully now but should hold for another 5-7 years.
