    Winemaker's Notes:

    This Chianti Classico is brilliant ruby red with generous aromas of ripe black cherry, violets and vanilla followed by elegant layers of dark fruit, tobacco and sweet spice on the palate. Dry, full-bodied and firmly structured, this wine makes a great pairing with roast beef, tripe or granular aged cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    (a mainly sangiovese wine with small percentages of native Tuscan grapes such as canaiolo nero; aged in a combination of large oak and barriques Bright red. Highly perfumed nose of sour red cherry, violet and vanillin oak. Enters bright and juicy, offering hints of red cherry and cardamom along with an iron-like quality. Youthfully chewy but smooth tannins on the back.
