This is a fleshy, fruity, pure Chianti Classico that is sure to please all fans of the region and of Sangiovese. The wine sports a ripe, wild red cherry, red currant and raspberry nose with classic spice/floral/earth sensations of white pepper, violets, thyme and black tea. Friendly and fruity enough to drink sans food, but it’s best with grilled/roasted white meats and cooked tomato dishes, I find. I like how this Chianti appeals to all palates while still being completely honest to Chianti.

This is 91% Sangiovese, 9% Canaiolo/Colorino. Organic Estate vineyards, temperature controlled cement tank fermenation (blend of old and new world winemaking there!), aged in big upright wooden vats (almost “neutral.”) If I had room for just one Chianti Classico in a wine shop or on a wine list, I’d happily choose this one. Tastes great, tastes like Chianti, and the price is right.

Not all wine is created equal.
