2001 Chianti D.O.C.G. La Arcarta

For some reason, this had been lurking in my cellar for a while when I drank it.

I suppose that I can praise it as a model of consistency in that it tastes pretty much the same as the 2002 which is currently on sale in the same shop.

That makes it an acceptable basic dry red wine with no outstanding features. It is an improvement on the earlier examples of this wine and that seems to point to improvements in the process of making and bottling the wine.

Had you bought this, you would have had fair value for your money.
