Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 Chianti Classico Gherardino is a darker, fresher wine loaded with black cherries, minerals, spices and leather. Although the wine is quite ripe in style, it also possesses just enough freshness to provide balance and verve. The Gherardino spent 8 months in oak. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2015.
