Melini La Selvanella Riserva, Chianti Classico, 2010


Melini La Selvanella Riserva, Chianti Classico, 2010Ho-hum.  The Grigio we drank a while back, sensational.  Still holding back on the last few bottles.  This could not compare.

 

Gismondi loved it and scored it 90 points so of course I bought the last two bottles at my local outlet.  He noted its “silky textures” and “long smooth elegant finish.”  For us it was more the bristle of four days growth on a burly longshoreman and a less than memorable and rather flat finish.  I won’t battle his prose but this was the most disappointing red of the summer.

 

Price: $24.50 plus taxes at BC Liquor

 

Market Liquidity: Second bottle goes out as a host gift.
