This ruby red Chianti Classico has aromas of soft fruit, pomegranite, and violet. The impact on the palate is satisfyingly mouth-filling, pleasurably balanced between acidity and alcohol, with a cherry aftertase. Serve with Tuscan cured meats or pork.
Floral, berry and hints of vanilla on the nose lead to a full body, with loads of fruit and silky tannins. Intense finish. Best from 2011 through 2014.
