This brooding beauty shows an ample bouquet of berries and violets that speak of the variety, and encompasses well integrated earthiness and spicy notes. It is a perfect example of the elegance, aromas and
character of its unique soil: full, round, with silky tannins, good structure and a lingering finish.
Pairs well with Tuscan salami, ham, pasta with medium-bodied sauces, and chicken.
"Very immediate on the nose, with ripe summer fruit and hints of powder puff and pot pourri. Very young and intense but still a little unsettled on the palate, with some traditional oak aromas still to be assimilated, intriguing complexity and great potential."
"This is a very solid and tight Chianti Classico with black cherries and sliced mushrooms. Full body, firm tannins and a medium finish. Solid as a rock."
Light & Fruity
Tasty but not heavy. Flowery nose and very smooth on the pallet. Light body. Short finish. In a word, enjoyable but not memorable.
Nice wine but certainly not a 95 rating
