2007 Frascole Chianti Rufina 90
Pretty, bright red. Floral aromas of redcurrant, blackberry and cherry show a delicate smoky nuance. Then fresh and lively on the palate, with a juicy quality to the varietally accurate redcurrant, sour red cherry and mineral flavors. Finishes bright and long, with noteworthy precision.

2006 Frascole Chianti Riserva Rufina 91
Slightly darker ruby-red than the entry-level Chianti. Inviting notes of cocoa and underbrush mingle with red berry and smoky plum aromas. Rich, chewy and smooth, with good focus to the flavors of red and black fruits complicated by minerals and flint. This remarkably graceful wine boasts sneaky concentration, polished tannins and very good length. I especially liked its bright, pristine flavors.
