Dense ruby-red in color. Richly aromatic with vibrant notes of dried cherries, red berries, spice and toasted notes. The palate shows a well-knit structure with firm tannins, lively acidity and smooth texture. This classic can be cellared for a few years, or served now with beef ravioli, seared pork loin, wild boar or other roasted game.
"Liverano's 2007 Chianti Classico Riserva is richer, deeper and darker than the straight Chianti. Black cherries, plums, mocha, spices, leather and licorice wrap around the generous, plush finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017."
