Fattoria La Vialla Casa Conforto Chianti Superiore 2016


Synopsis, Our Opinion: A good “week-night” Chianti at a very competitive price.

Producer/Winery: Fattoria La Vialla; Subbiano, Italy.

Grape Variety: Sangiovese.

Geographic Appellation,, Region, Country: Chianti; Tuscany, Italy.

Vintage: 2016

Price: $17.00

Purchased From: DB Sutton and Co. Wine Shop; Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Paired With: Roasted tomato soup with ham, Swiss cheese and dried tomato braded Stromboli.

Tasting:

    Opened 90-minutes before drinking. Clear, very dark ruby color with the same color rim. Light musty cherry, tobacco and woodsy aromas. Sultry, dry, solid medium body and a 150-grit texture. Bitter cherry and raspberry flavors, bright acidity, lighter than expected smooth tannins and a long dusty fruit and tar tasting finish that stayed through a long aftertaste. Excellent paired with the tomato soup, in fact, a better pairing than the Sauvignon Blanc we had previously with this dinner. A good “week-night” Chianti at a very competitive price.
