    Winemaker's Notes:

    We use only native vines, without Cabernet and Merlot, to maintain the typical formula of the famous italian wines. Without following the fashion, using even South wines, our grapes make the beautiful ruby red of Sangioveto red and black. A wine that wants to reach, with its uniqueness, the maximum elegance.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Chianti Classico opens with sweet, refined aromatics that lead to succulent red cherries, flowers, spices, mint and hard candy, all of which come together beautifully in this radiant, seductive wine. The 2009 is a touch silkier and more polished than the 2008 tasted alongside it, but both are beautiful. A long, creamy finish adds to an impression of amplitude on the palate. The 2009 should drink well for another decade, perhaps more. A small percentage of Canaiolo (5%) is added to the Sangiovese. The wine is fermented in steel and aged in neutral French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021.

    I'm not sure if I'm a Chianti fan or not yet as this was only the 3rd or 4th bottle I've had. This 2was okay, but nothing great.
