(2009 Vintage) Celebrating the best Tuscan tradition Banfi offers a family of Chianti wines varied and complementary, unique in its style. Chianti Riserva is produced from selected grapes grown in the "Classico" region of Chianti between Siena and Firenze. It is elegant, well-balanced, full-bodied with a very long aging potential.
Definitely old world. Not fruity. Adequate tannins to Match the fruitiness. Made my tongue nice and clean. Ordered a couple glasses with Orichiette Pasta with Brocolli Rappa and Sausage. Worked great with Spaghetti Forno that was made fresh next to the table in a cheese rind.
