La Striscia 2012 Chianti From The Wine Of The Month Club – February 2014

Last night I decided to open up the Fattoria La Striscia 2012 Chianti I had received in my February 2014 shipment from the Wine of the Month Club and boy was I happily impressed. The magenta color and the earthy, licorice and tart cherry nose provided an elegant and engaging cherry and earth finish that I won’t soon forget. The palate was of leather with mixed cherries, which may seem odd to some, but was exquisite on the tongue.

I could have kept this 95 point beauty in my wine cellar until around 2017, but I couldn’t contain my enthusiasm for giving it a try based on how much I enjoyed the other bottle I received in my February 2014 Limited Series shipment from the Wine of the Month Club: The 2012 Montupoli Montepulciano d’Abruzzo

For those of you that are unfamiliar with the Wine of the Month Club, you can read our Wine of the Month Club Review to see why we love this wine club as much as we do for as many years as we have. I’m a huge fan and active member of both their Limited and
Vinters Series and highly recommend both, but be sure to use one of our COUPON CODES to ensure you save when you sign up.

One of the reasons why I like the Wine of the Month Club as much as I do is because of the amount of education you receive on each and every bottle you receive. For example, here’s some of what I learned about the La Strisca 2012 Chianti (Sangiovese) by being a member of the Wine of the Month Club: The Fattoria La Striscia winery boasts deep roots that go all the way back to the Italian Renaissance! In fact, in 1800, during the reign of Grand Duke Leopolde II of Tuscany, the well known Count Giovan Battista Occhini acquired the Tenuta di Villa La Striscia with his favorite brother Pietro. Driven by a strong love for the traditions of this well known area, Occhini developed the estate with strong focus on the vineyards. Where else are you going to get such an amazing depth of information on a bottle of wine?! Nothing beats the Wine of the Month Club for value and education.
