1999 Chianti D.O.C.G. Colli Senesi
At DeM4.99 this wine costs a quarter more than that vast number of similarly labelled wines that are available for DeM3.99. It's a good thing that it is better then.

The aroma is good and fruity and the balance of acid, dryness and tannin is spot on. It all combines to make for a very pleasing mouthful. Perhaps there is a slight hint of roughness in the aftertaste but you would only detect that if you were trying to pick faults.

We normally buy this wine from Marktkauf and, like most supermarkets in Germany, they offer other Chiantis for one Mark less. Our advice is to pony up the extra Helmut and go for this one.

Wine rating 6/10. Value rating +1
