80% Sangiovese, 20% Malvasia Nera
The 2006 Chianti Classico Vigneto Bellavista boasts compelling inner sweetness, great power and huge overall structure. Dark cherries, flowers, licorice, tobacco and incense are some of the many notes that burst from the glass in this explosive, totally seductive Bellavista. The 2006 needs time to fully integrate its French oak, but it is shaping up to be a jewel. It is quite clear from this tasting the 2006 is evolving at a glacial pace. Readers who can be patient will be amply rewarded. It is conceivable that the 2006 could one day eclipse the 2004. Last tasted Jun 2012; Drink now-2036.
