2013 Rubattorno Winery Chianti Montalbano D.O.C.G.
Region: Chianti Montalbano, Chianti, Tuscany, Italy
Bright ruby red. Slightly higher intensity than the color of the Riserva. Way too tight on day one. Sealed the bottle back up and tried again on day two. Nose opened up with some moldy cheese. dried herbs and developed into a few savory notes of smoky meats. Definitely has some earthy notes too with some bell peppers (vegetal notes) and wet stones. Finished off with some red cherries and cranberries. Moderate plus body that leads to a very dry acidic finish. This wine needs more time to open up, even after three days it was too tight. Hopefully in the future we get to try this bottle again and see how it has developed!
