Castello d’Albola Chianti Classico Riserva 2013
||WS 91 WA 91|
Horizontal tanks to facilitate extraction were installed during modernization of the winery, owned by Zonin for more than 30 years. Aged two years in casks, this Chianti is made from the estate’s best Sangiovese grapes. Under measured strength, nuances of cherry, dried flowers and rosewood define the supple, suave and well-balanced palate. Accessible now, and over the next three to five years.
