Banfi Chianti Classico 2004
from Tuscany, Italy
Chianti has long been regarded by many as the "most Italian" of wines, not only because it is the most widely produced classified wine, but also because it possesses a unique personality.
Banfi Chianti Classico embodies all the characteristics that have made this wine an enduring classic: an alluring bouquet of black fruit and violets; rich flavors of cherry and leather; supple tannins and good acidity for dining. Fermentation takes place with a traditional skin contact of 8 to 10 days. Aging in French oak barriques for 7 months follows. Bottling is carried out in the summer following the harvest.
Banfi Chianti Classico is the perfect accompaniment to a wide variety of foods, including red-sauced pastas, grilled meats, and roasts.

An incredibly smooth Chianti with a flabor and body similar to a cabernet or merlot. We loved it!
