Wine Description

Supple, well balanced, and perfumed in every vintage, they have become an illustration for younger producers of what pristine agriculture, high-density vineyards and meticulous fermentation can achieve. Fennel, and porcini-infused earth form the backdrop for fine, black cherry fruit, while silky tannins and mouthwatering fruit acids allow Paolo's wines to linger gracefully on the palate.

    (2005 Vintage) Dark ruby. Perfumed nose of red cherry and strawberry is clean and fresh. Boasts copious floral, minty red berry and red cherry flavors of lovely purity, with a smooth yet vibrant texture nicely firmed by an edge of acidity. Very fine entry-level Chianti.
