Deep, luminous ruby-red in color, this Chianti Classico offers aromas of ripe cherries and plums, with nuances of toasted oak and violets. On the palate, the wine displays a superb, full-structured character, all of which unfolds into an intensely savory finish. Pair with bean stews, pastas and roasted or barbecued meats.
"The 2007 Chianti Classico is a gorgeous wine graced with silky tannins, intensely perfumed fruit and an understated, elegant finish. Leather, spices, dried herbs and tobacco add complexity to the fruit, but it is the wine’s impeccable sense of harmony that is most impressive. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2015.
