Review: 2007 Dievole Chianti Classico La Vendemmia

This DOCG Chianti is 80 percent Sangiovese and 20 percent “red grapes” — mystery Tuscan grapes that give La Vendemmia a “field blend” feeling.

Remarkably soft and fruity for Chianti, the wine is a deep purple wine with a surprisingly light body, herbal with lavender and rosemary notes atop a core of blueberry and dark plum. The finish is woody, with a touch of tar, but not borderline astringent like so much Italian wine, which can come across as unripe and austere. On the whole, Dievole’s La Vendemmia works well and comes together nicely — a remarkable value for the quality it offers.
