2009 Cennatoio | DOCG Chianti Classico
I'm being totally serious; I met a guy who told me he liked his Chianti like he did his women: pale, cheerful, and cheap. Not surprisingly, he was twice divorced and heading for a third.
This bottle continues a strong run of Chianti Classico's I've been tasting lately. Full of that dustiness, that earthiness I always think of as crucial to true sangiovese. A beautiful wine, proving yet again that intensity (in wine and other things) is measured by focus, not by screaming louder than everyone else.
That's how I like them.
