The black fruit, great density and concentrated flavors of Chianti Classico. Dried strawberries, roasted meats, olives, and floral aromas and flavors go beyond the norm for Chianti Classico to make a wine of extraordinary character and depth. Rich tannins are supported by deep black fruit, seamless barrel integration and an overall sweet palate impression.
I live in the wine region of Canada and have become accustom to wonderful wines at relatively low costs. During a recent trip to Japan I came across this wine and let me say that this in an absolutely incredible wine. It is reasonably priced for the quality of the wine however I recommend purchasing from a wine store as opposed to waiting to come across it in a restaurant as the price can exceed hundreds of dollars.. you should be able to find it for just under $50.
