Masi Riserva Chianti 2005
Masi Riserva Chianti 2005 Wine Review
Vintages Wine Panel: This Chianti Riserva is a blend of 93% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo, and 2% Colorino. Ruffina ages it for 30 months in a combination of barrel and bottle. Canaiolo adds some acidity, while the Colorino (instead of the now-allowed Cabernet Sauvignon) is used by traditionalists who want to add tannic structure but keep the wine 'all Italian'. Try this with classic Tuscan dishes. My note: Dark chocolate and a river of black cherries. Full-bodied and supple. Terrific for Italian dishes, of course. 4.3/5 Chianti food pairings: steak Florentine.
