Customer Reviews for Collezione di Paolo Chianti 2009
A really 'poppy' wine. Especially tart, and has a poppy fizziness about it, like it was slightly carbonated.
Response from WSJwine:By Customer Service, September 12, 2014
Thanks very much for your review. We have examined Paolo’s Chianti and can definitely report that it isn’t carbonated. Occasionally a few small bubbles may appear around the rim when the wine is first poured. These should dissipate after it’s been open a while. That said, we always want you to be completely satisfied and will be in touch soon to follow up with you.
This wine didn't stand out as great but there was also nothing wrong with it. It was pretty mild. My wife even liked it and she only drinks smooth non-tannen-like wines that are sweet. This is not a sweet wine though, I also felt it was very smooth. The nose was very faint. It didn't make me go, 'wow!' Chianti wines tend to be a bit harsh, which is ok with me, but this was an exception.
Poured a glass, let it breathe a few minutes, took a sip and couldn't believe how bad it was. Waited 10 minutes and tried another sip- same vinegary taste. I'm even afraid to try cooking with this wine.

Very sorry you didn't enjoy the wine. Perhaps a bad bottle? If you haven't been refunded we'll be in touch soon to take care of it.
