Cantine Bellini 2011 Chianti Classico
Leafy underbrush aromas with whiffs of wet earth and blue flower lead the nose on this blend of 80% Sangiovese and 20% Canailo and Colorino. The one-dimensional palate offers black cherry, raspberry and a touch of cinnamon alongside astringent tannins. You can also detect the alcohol despite the modest percentage. Kerin O’Keefe

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
