Castello di San Polo in Rosso, Chianti Classico Riserva 1995
Very dense, bright crimson colour. Nose of cherry, almond and tar, cedar and sandalwood. Hints of violets and incense. Classy, cool and restrained palate with more bitter cherry and plumskin fruit. There is a very tight structure with sharp lemony acidity that is rather impenetrable at present, but there is a lot of quality here. Good for a few years too. Currently available in UK Supermarket Sainsbury at 8.49. (04/99).
