Ruffino 1995 Aziano Chianti Classico ($11.99)
Clear ruby. Good black-cherry and spicy oak aromas lead into full, juicy black fruit flavors and lemony acidity, a big structure holding up big fruit. This excellent new release bodes very well for the 1995 Chianti Classicos now coming into the market. The $12 price tag doesn't bode so well for Aziano's long reputation as a budget special, though.

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
