(From 2013 Vintage) Chianti Classico embodies the intensity and freshness of our territory. The austere elegance of Sangiovese is enhanced by the addition of variable percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The result is a wine, which is fresh, but also intense, fruity, full bodied and balanced. It has a good acidity and a lingering taste.
Bright ruby color. Lovely, rich cherry and berry aromas with leafy undertones follow through to a medium palate, with medium, fine tannins and a hint of dark chocolate on the finish. Perfect with all kinds of grilled meats.
DecanterRating: 3/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Quite rounded nose. Some oak, medium weight, needs to age, some fruit. Drink 2008-11.
