La Maialina celebrates the history, culture, and cuisine of Chianti, famed for its beautiful landscape marked with green, gentle hill covered vineyards, olive groves and cypress trees. The name ムLa Maialinaメ means (little pig).


According to Wine Advocate - The 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva shows the mid-weight, understated personality of the year in a delicate, ethereal expression of plums, black cherries, licorice and tobacco. The aromas and flavors are woven together beautifully in this gracious, totally delicious wine. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2016. This is another superb set of wines from La Maialina.


Readers may recall from last year that La Maialina sources unfinished wine from one of Tuscany’s most famous estates that, understandably, wishes to remain anonymous. These are some of the very finest values in Tuscany.


Winemakers Notes - Inviting aromas of black cherries, plums and sweet spices, with notes of roses and black pepper, elegant and lush on the palate with ripe round tannins and a long finish.
