With 12.5% alcohol, the 1985 Chianti Colli Senesi from Fattoria Di Pietrafitea located in San Gimignano cost only $8 back then and not a lot more today. It scored 17 Dionysian points. It was still ruby red with an orange-amber edge, It was balanced and mature aromas rose with spice, smoke, and dried tomato.
It was decanted just prior to dinner and poured. It had a long smooth aftertaste and enhanced the meal. It was imported by Alberico Wine located in McKee City in the heart of Atlantic County, NJ. This area has a little cherub instead of a rooster on its label. In Vino Veritas.
