Wine Details


Chianti Blend





Wine Description

Ruby red color. Bouquet is intense with varietal notes of cherry, plum and violet. Taste is fresh, balanced, typical. A wine for every dish, matches meat dishes superbly.

    Ruby color with light rim. Roses, tomato, balsamic vinegar, cherries, hay. Cherries, lemon, medium acids and tannins. Average example of chianti classico. Needs food, preferable red sauced pasta. Does not stand up well against red meat.

    (1998 Vintage) Shows dried raspberry and cinnamon on the nose. Full-bodied, with an impressive density of fruit and round tannins. Long and flavorful. Just starting to open up. Powerful and rich. Best after 2010.
