    Varietal: Sangiovese

    Item no. 91435

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2007!

    Blend: 90% Sangiovese; 10% Malvasia, Colorino, Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon

    Color: An enticing, rather pronounced ruby red, edged with garnet.

    Aromas: The suite of fragrances exhibits considerable complexity, opening to dark fruit such as plum and black currant, then enriched by a pungent spiciness that betrays cinnamon and clove.

    Taste: The attack offers dense, impressive pulp, and finegrained tannins that marry beautifully with its alcohol; the result is a solidly-built, but not heavy or extractive, wine with a seamless, long-lingering finish.

    "Very aromatic, offering bright blackberry and light vanilla aromas. Full-bodied, with vibrant fruit, fine tannins and a clean, crisp, fruity finish. Best after 2008."

    A BEAUTIFUL BLOODY RED WITH A BITE OF ITS OWN THAT WOULD MAKE ANY VAMPIRE SMILE WITH DELIGHT. A NATURAL TASTE WITH BITE THAT SAYS I AM HERE. LEAVING YOU WANTING FOR MORE, ALMOST ADDICTIVE. ONCE BITTEN THERE IS NO TURNING BACK.

    Beautiful, smooth chianti to enjoy on a cool fall evening. I am not usually a chianti-lover, but this one was fantastic. Can't wait to drink it again.

    Liked it! ...not a big fan of Chianti, but this is a pleasant exception.
