This Chianti Classico exemplifies a modern approach to making this very traditional wine. It's a satisfying middleweight with good flavor intensity and well-balanced structure, wrapping classic flavors in a sleek package. It has enticing aromas of tart red cherries, saddle leather and a hint of pungent dried herbs. In the mouth, it delivers bright flavors of dried red cherries against the classic Tuscan background of leather and oriental spice. The finish is long and aromatic, with crisp acidity supporting the lingering flavor of red Michigan pie cherries.
There's enough silky tannin and firm acid to warrant cellaring for five or six years. Time in the cellar will soften the wine's sharp edges and enhance its aromatic breadth and intensity, transforming the coltish charmer into a soft, sumptuous seductress.

We are relatively new to the world of wine, but hands down this was the best wine we have tried thus far. Our interests in Chianti and Vino Italiano has been peeked after this wonderful experience.

This is the best Chianti I've ever had - hands down. It is so smooth, rich and much lighter than any I've ever had. Both my husband & I are fans.

This is one of my favorite wines. The aroma is wonderful and the taste is just right, with a lingering finish that calls for another sip. Great with Italian food at our favorate restaraunt. If it improves with cellaring, it will indeed be a great wine. I am getting a case while it is available.
