My first sip of this wine took me back a few decades in time when Chianti and Tuscan reds in general were lighter, more austere ““ more real, and distinctive. In order to compete with Shiraz and Merlot, many producers have beefed-up their wines resulting in a loss of distinction. As a fan of the “˜original‘ I’m delighted to recommend Castello Di Albola to others who might share my preference for reds with an appetizing edge, and Italian vitality ““ over richness and smoothness.
