Chianti Poggiopiano 2009 - Case of 6
As an experienced and enthusiastic lover of Italian wines I was very disappointed with this,particularly so given the reputation of the vintage and the estate.The wines tastes dried out with little fruit and dominant old wood.It is possible that this consignment has suffered in storage or transit as it hard to believe a professional wine buyer would have bought this tasted as is.
I returned 5 of the 6 bottles which were collected without demur by M&S so full marks(!)for that.Other Italian wines purchased from M&S have been very satisfactory and with good typicity eg the Ripasso Valpolicella and Pecorino - this is an aberration.
