Colognole Sinopie Chianti 2011
It is light to medium body wine with cherry and raspberry aromas, a hint of dried herbs and a salty black licorice finish. It goes well with white meats, polutry, red meats, light pasta dishes and cheeses. The Colognole estate is run by two brothers, Mario and Cesare Coda Nunzinate, who have a passion for Chianti Rufina and have built a name for themselves in this small appellation just northwest of Chianti Classico. Sinopie is the second label of the estate, used for the grapes that have not quite met the demands they have for their highly regarded Chianti Rufina. In many cases the vines are still fairly young. The wine is classified as Chianti DOCG, however they are still sourced from within the Rufina DOCG area. To get Sangiovese grapes to ripen to perfection is a difficult task: low temperatures, day/night differences in temperatures and frequent rain make it necessary to reduce yields. The vineyards have been replanted according to scientific criteria (clone selections, careful choice of the rootstock, physical-chemical preparation of soil) and they have been positioned for optimum exposure to the sun. This wine is a lighter, easier drinking Chianti, similar to what locals within the region would drink daily.
