    Winemaker's Notes:

    Lively ruby red in color. Fresh on the nose with notes of violets and red fruits. The pleasant and enjoyable palate boasts rounded tannins. Perfect for young drinking.

    This Chianti Classico, a blend of 80% Sangiovese and 20% Merlot, possesses the lively aromatics and rich fruit of its bigger brothers, but is designed for younger drinking. A prime example of the appellation.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2005 Chianti Classico (80% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot) offers up attractive sweet roses, spices and dark fruit. The Merlot gives the wine a lovely plumpness in this vintage. This fresh, floral Chianti is best enjoyed over the next few years, while the fruit is vibrant. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2013.

    Livernano is an excellent choice for wines made in a forward, fruit-driven style. This is a very strong set of new releases, particularly considering that 2005 was a challenging vintage, and nowhere was that more the case than in the higher altitude vineyards of Chianti Classico in towns like Radda.

    A very nice chianti: smooth but just complex enough.
