Santa Margherita is renowned for its elegant and authentic Italian style. This wine is made with grapes from its vineyards in the heart of Tuscany's Chianti Classico region and is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot grapes. The additional aging time required to be a Riserva produces softer tannins and a more mature finish.
The color is deep and dense ruby red, with aromas of very ripe black cherries and plums, then floral hints of gladiolus. The palate exudes initial fruits and spices that shift gradually into fruits and herbal notes.
Santa Margherita (of Pinot Grigio fame) has crafted an elegant Chianti Classico Riserva that offers bright berry nuances followed by hints of blue flowers, cola and moist earth. This is not an overextracted or overly dense wine, instead it makes an easy companion to most foods from pasta to meat.
