Melini Borghi D’ Elsa Chianti 2005

May 13th, 2007

images.jpgWow. If you really want to find good Italian wines, go to real Italian Restaurants. I’m not talking about the Olive Garden types baby, but the real mom & pop places. On a recent trip to Germany, I discovered this little sweetheart at Isola Bella Ristorante in Binsfeld. This wine is quickly becoming one of the best chiantis that I have had.

You might suspect this wine to be too young judging by it’s vintage, but such is not the case. The appearance is a clear transparent red and very reflective. The aromas are of cherries with subtle blackberry highlights and oak. Thats the way I see it Diegs. The flavors are complex and full of character. The textures are smooth and consistent throughout with a lingering finish that compels you to enjoy another sip.

I don’t think I could have tried this wine in a better environment. I ejoyed this wine with penne arrabiatta con salsicia and with several good friends, finished three liters of this wine before buying a bottle for myself. Needless to say I did very thorough research. I’m glad I can’t quit you Melini.

      What happened to this site? It seems to of dropped off the face of the earth, yet is one of the first sites to show when searching for wine reviews. Disappointing:(
