Villa Cafaggio 2009 Chianti Classico Riserva
Villa Cafaggio is a 160 acre estate located in an area of the Chianti Classico region known as the "Conca d'Oro" or Golden Basin because it has such an ideal microclimate. Vineyards lie at about 1,200 feet above sea level and only grapes from the south facing hillsides go into this Riserva which also benefits from the superb conditions of the 2009 vintage. 100% Sangiovese the wine was aged 18 months in French oak barriques before an addition 4 months in large casks and 6 months in the bottle. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 94 points saying "Here's a beautiful Chianti Classico from Panzano's Conca d'Oro or Golden Basin, one of the best areas in the denomination. It has compelling aromas of pipe tobacco, crushed cherry, smoke and leather. The palate delivers juicy black-cherry, plum, clove, carob and mineral. This wine has it all: structure, elegance and mesmerizing depth." Don't miss this.

        Tbis is a very good Chianti for the price. It needs a little time out of the bottle but not much. It fills out nicely after about 15 minutes uncorked.

          We drink this Chianti with steaks and lamb. It is the perfect pairing for beef and lamb. There are no "cons" for this wine.

            Comments about Villa Cafaggio 2009 Chianti Classico Riserva:

            What a complex and delightful wine this is! The nose is really old world in style with tobacco and cigar box notes surrounding the sour cherry and red berry fruit. But on the palate, the fruit takes center stage along with some pretty firm tannins and smoky oak giving it a new world kind of feel. The finish is bone dry with the fruit and dark chocolate hanging on the back palate. This is a stunning wine, especially at this price!

                A:

                Because this is a Riserva it can be enjoyed now without further aging. If you decide to cellar it it will continue to evolve over several years. This wine is best with savory meat dishes without too much spice like Steak Florentine, or a Grilled veal Chop.
