Wine Description

(2001 Vintage) Intense ruby red in color. The bouquet is fruity with scents of iris and violet. This is a robust, well balanced and structured Chianti with deep cherry flavors and firm tannins. Recommended with hearty vegetable soups and pastas in meat sauces. Excellent with grilled meat and game as well as aged cheeses.
