    Item no. 100197

    Winemaker's Notes:

    A purple-flecked, dark red impresses the eye with its richness. The nose first conveys graceful floral notes of sweet violet and a tasty amalgam of sour black cherry, dried plum, and raspberry, which is soon enriched with spicy nuances of vanilla. A notably refreshing crispness marks the entire progression of the wine in the mouth, as well as dense-packed, youthful tannins that are, however, already quite well integrated into the structure. It concludes with a generous, warm finish.

    SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Barbecued meat and beef stews, aged cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Shows sweet blueberry notes, with mineral and lilac. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and vanilla and bright fruit flavors. Clean and racy. Best after 2010. 130,000 cases made.

    This is a very nice Chianti at a reasonable price. Nice aromas and flavors evolve in the glass and the mouth. Easy to drink. A perfect wine to enjoy with some good antipasto followed by an excellent lassagna.
