Winemaker's Notes

The latest release from Sting's Il Palagio winery in Tuscany, When We Dance is a fresh, young Chianti that positively exudes charm, violets and bright red cherry fruit.

When We Dance is a glorious, ruby red color and a palate that is balanced and smooth. This fresh, light everyday wine exudes charm, violets and bright red cherry fruit.
