Caparsino Chianti Classico Riserva 2008 (3rd Tasting)


Recommendation: Simply the best Chianti we’ve ever had!!!

Paired With: Chicken cacciatore.

Tasting:

    He said: We have had this many times (and it’s our last of the 2008) but every time we drink this Chianti it’s simply OUTSTANDING. This is truly one of those very rare MEMORABLE wines…and simply put the all-time best Chianti we have had. With red sauce it’s perfect; drinking alone it get a little dryer and is still OUTSTANDING!!! This Chianti sets the “high bar” standard for us; if you like Chianti this is it!!!

    She said: The juicy fruit flavor and aroma seduced me. This tasting is just like it has been in the past. Unbelievably smooth and elegant from start to finish!
