Today's Wine Tasting Note

© Copyright 1997 by Robin Garr. All rights reserved.

The second simple Chianti of the weekend, juicy and ripe, though pushing against the limits of quality-price ratio:

Marchesi de' Frescobaldi 1995 Rèmole Chianti ($9.99)
Clear ruby color. Good black-cherry and spicebox aromas. Full, juicy tart-cherry fruit flavor, simple and fresh. A bowl of wild cherries in a longish finish. Very accessible wine. Importer: Paterno Imports Ltd., Chicago.

For another good, moderately priced Chianti, see my tasting note for Nov. 7.

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.
