    Professional Ratings: 91 James Suckling, 90 The Wine Advocate

    Region: Tuscany, Italy

    Varietal: Sangiovese

    Item no. 123320

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep ruby color. Intense and complex, typical of the grape variety with notes of cherries, floral and vanilla hints soft and round with well integrated tannins, pleasantly alcoholic. Good texture and excellent balance. The finish is persistent and mouth filling.

    This wine will pair beautifully with roasted meat, stews, game dishes, pasta with hearty meat sauces and aged cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A wine, with a lovely core of ripe fruit that gives a cherry and spice character. Full and velvety with a polished and caressing texture. Clearly outstanding.

    The 2009 Chianti Classico possesses lovely nuance and detail. Tobacco, crushed flowers and licorice are some of the nuances that add complexity to the fruit in this delicious, medium-bodied Chianti Classico.
