Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
A rich, luminous ruby red. Appealing, crisp notes of menthol emerge on the nose, blending beautifully with more developed aromas reminiscent of cinchona and tamarind. The wine enters smooth and almost creamy, massive and full, but not in the least aggressive. Tannins are well integrated with the alcohol, and a seductive, tasty finish lingers quite long.
"This full-bodied version shows beautiful dark chocolate and ripe black cherry aromas, with firm tannins and sweet, ripe fruit. Long and very beautiful. Structured. Best from 2010 through 2015. 5,000 cases made. "
"The 2006 Chianti Classico Riserva Berardo (Sangiovese) is a vibrant, perfumed offering layered with dark cherries, violets and sweet spices. The French oak is a touch intrusive given the wine’s mid-weight structure. Nevertheless, this is a very fine bottle for the money. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020."
The Wine Advocate
"Dark ruby-red. Similar on the n ose to the entry-level Chianti but deeper, with a stronger vanillin oak note and a whiff of dried herbs complementing the red cherry and plum aromas. Plush and silky but also well focused, with ripe flavors of red cherry, plum and sweet licorice. Finishes with smooth-as-silk tannins, an attractive glyceral texture, and an impression of residual sweetness. This is quite enjoyable now, and I wouldn't wait much longer to enjoy it."

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...Read More About Sangiovese
