    Winemaker's Notes:

    90% Sangiovese; 5% Malvasia Nera and Colorino; 5% Merlot

    Produced with Sangiovese and a small amount of Malvasia Nera, Colorina and Merlot, it is characterized by a balance of elegance and complexity, which make this wine a magnificent example of "terroir".

    Bouquet: Bright aromas of fresh cherries mingle with notes of thyme and subtle smoky nuances

    Taste: Complex and elegant, with flavors of ripe red fruits and a pleasant acidity. Fine and well balanced, with a lengthy finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Blackberry and milk chocolate aromas follow through to a medium body, with silky tannins and a fruity finish, with a hint of fresh herb and mushroom. Solid as always.

    I put this baby in a decanter for about an hour, and it opened up beautifully. It is one of the best chianti wines that I have had.
