A deep, dark wine showing a vibrant, fruit-forward bouquet with aromas of ripe blueberries, freshly made jam, a touch of balsam and some herbal notes which follow through to the rounded, red and black fruit palate. A clean, savoury palate is balanced with rounded tannins and a freshness on the finish which is typical of the area.
Chianti Cecchi is characterised by a red ruby colour, which tends towards granite red when aged. On the nose it is intensely aromatic with notes of violets. On the palate it is well balanced with the classic signature of Chianti.
Chateau Musar Red wines are a varying blend of old vine, low yielding Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Carignan, approximately one third of each. Fermentation is in concrete, then the wine spends a year in the vat (each variety is vatted separately), then a year or so in French Never oak. It is blended in the 3rd year, put back into vat and bottled at the end of the 3rd year and cellared for up to 6 or 7 years before release. There is no fining, minimum filtration and sulphites are kept very low. Chateau Musar recommends decanting the Red wines 30 minutes to 2 hours prior to serving.
Intense crimson with youthful purple hues. Lifted blue fruits, plum, macerated blackberries and Christmas pudding-like spice flow out of the glass with spicy pepper, and hints of bramble and dark cocoa. The palate is generous with mouth filling sweet blackberry, raspberry and plums and lashings of sweet spice. Firm but fine tannins and dark chocolaty nuances continue throughout the lengthy palate with youthful finish.
Intense ruby red in colour. The nose is fresh and pronounced with excellent fruit concentration. The palate is clean and well balanced, with a core of strawberry fruit combined with subtle vanilla flavours from American oak. The finish is juicy and long.
Bright ruby-garnet in colour with an intense nose, perfumes of dark fruit and a touch of cloves with a savoury, herbal note. On the palate it is full-bodied yet elegant, with plenty of robust but ripe tannins supporting the dark, dried plum and autumn compote fruit character and balancing the acidity. Long and fine, with perfumes of roses and violets on the finish.
Deep and bright violet colour. The nose shows aromas of black fruits, ripe cherries and blackcurrants with notes of spices, green and black pepper. On the palate, the wine is robust with notes of dry plums, tobacco and chocolate. The soft and matured tannins provide a long and pleasant finish.
