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."
"The 2008 Chianti Classico sparkles on the palate with notable brilliance in its dark red fruit. This is a beautifully balanced, harmonious Chianti that showcases the more feminine side of the appellation. Clean, mineral notes on the finish provide the freshness and verve that will make this a terrific wine for the dinner table. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2014."
