Mystery Wine

I admit it.  As much as I like the idea of Cellartracker, I’m far too lazy to update it every time wine arrives at my house.  Really, I would have to update it several times a week at the rate wine shows up here.  As a result, I often end up with mystery wine, wine at whose origins I can only guess.  Tonight that mystery wine is a 2006 Palagetto Chianti Colli Senesi.  If I had to venture a guess, I’d probably say this is one my dad bought.  It had a real cork closure, clocked in at 13.5% alcohol by volume, and it appears to retail for about $14.

On the nose I found strawberry, cedar, spice, pepper, flowers, and berries. Overall, the nose seemed a bit sweet.  In the mouth I got flavors of cherry, strawberry, blackberry, and pepper.  I found the wine to have a meaty quality.  The wine was easy to drink, simple, and a good everyday drinker.
