"Cracking Value" Chianti

 

Is there a better value imported genre than Chianti? As much as I appreciate Australian attempts at the style, it is hard to go past Italian Sangiovese, especially when some excellent examples can be had for less than local 'interpretations'. Parri Chianti is the current golden child where Chianti is concerned with a pair of releases the quality of which that really do belie the asking price.

There's the Gary Walsh described "Very tidy; Great value and just so easy to enjoy" Parri Poggiano Chianti 2016. Then the Parri Montespertoli Riserva Chianti 2015 which he not only describes as "cracking value, and a wonderful drink" but adds 94 Points - this for a wine we are offering for $23.99. A massive rating/price ratio for the lads at The Wine Front. Full reviews are below but please note the Riserva in particular has limited availability: 

Poggiano 2016 (left): A very tidy wine in 2016, it’s light but flavoursome, tobacco and cherry, cut and thrust, parry, dancing neatly through the mouth. Tannin is suede-like and sure-footed, finish is satisfying and savoury, with just the right amount of fruitness to keep it on track. Great value and just so easy to enjoy. Tasted: Oct 18; Alcohol: 13.5%; Price: $23; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2018-2023; Rated: 91 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front

Parri Poggiano Chianti 2016 @ $14.99


Riserva 2015 (right): Tasted this with a few people last night, from novice to seasoned taster, and they all just loved it. Rich, almost liquorice scented, sweetness of cherry fruit, mint, suede, and a touch of balsamic. Medium-bodied, but rich and plump, sweet tannin, succulence and flavour, bright and so yum. A little ‘mineral’ feel too. Length is excellent. Flat out delicious. This is cracking value, and a wonderful drink. Alcohol: 14%; Price: $29; Closure: Diam; Drink: 2018 - 2025+; Rating: 94 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
