Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2007!
Blend: 90% Sangiovese; 10% Malvasia,
Colorino, Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon
Color: An enticing, rather pronounced ruby red, edged with
Aromas: The suite of fragrances exhibits considerable
complexity, opening to dark fruit such as plum and black
currant, then enriched by a pungent spiciness that
betrays cinnamon and clove.
Taste: The attack offers dense, impressive pulp, and finegrained
tannins that marry beautifully with its alcohol;
the result is a solidly-built, but not heavy or extractive,
wine with a seamless, long-lingering finish.
"Very aromatic, offering bright blackberry and light vanilla aromas. Full-bodied, with vibrant fruit, fine tannins and a clean, crisp, fruity finish. Best after 2008."
A BEAUTIFUL BLOODY RED WITH A BITE OF ITS OWN THAT WOULD MAKE ANY VAMPIRE SMILE WITH DELIGHT. A NATURAL TASTE WITH BITE THAT SAYS I AM HERE. LEAVING YOU WANTING FOR MORE, ALMOST ADDICTIVE. ONCE BITTEN THERE IS NO TURNING BACK.
Beautiful, smooth chianti to enjoy on a cool fall evening. I am not usually a chianti-lover, but this one was fantastic. Can't wait to drink it again.
very smooth and flavorful with a very nice finish
Liked it! ...not a big fan of Chianti, but this is a pleasant exception.
