Coltibuono 1997 "Roberto Stucchi" Chianti Classico ($15.99)
ColtibuonoA special bottling named after Coltibuono's noted wine maker, this Chianti is drinking beautifully, a real delight. Dark ruby in color, it offers black-cherry and delicate earthy aroma notes. Ripe, tart fruit flavors evoke eating a bowl of fresh cherries. Layered and deep, it's totally approachable now without compromise, but it has the balance and structure to hold and improve for a long time. U.S. importer: Winebow Inc., NYC; Leonardo Loscascio Selections. (Oct. 2, 2000)

FOOD MATCH: Perfect with grilled lamb steaks.

NEW!
Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We are now publishing Wine Lovers' Page wine reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the Wine Lovers' Page name and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.

Have you tasted these wines?
E-mail me your tasting notes, and I'll consider adding them to this page.
