Wine Description

(2008 Vintage) Deep ruby in color, the 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG displays floral notes of sweet violets combined with hints of cherry jam. The palate is full-bodied and complex with rich flavors of blackcurrent and plums that merge harmoniously with notes of fragrant woods and licorice that extend through the long finish

    Bold, full flavor; unlike a typical chianti.
