"La Maialina's 2007 Chianti Classico Riserva is simply beautiful. Readers will find plenty of 2007 vintage character in this soft, expansive wine. Dark fruit, leather and spices inform the supple, creamy finish. This is already fabulous; the only question is how much it might improve in the coming years. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2017.
La Maialina is my most exciting discovery in Tuscany so far this year. Consulting oenologist Attilio Pagli buys wines in bulk from one of Tuscany's most elite properties, then raises and bottles them in a separate facility. I was blown away by what I tasted. When you factor in the price, these are some of the most stunning values to come out of Tuscany, or anywhere for that matter."
