Banfi Chianti Classico DOCG 2013

Member Review by Amish22:

I am a Chianti lover and this wine has a full bodied taste without being overbearing. Goes with every dish I have had with it thus far. Especially beefs and chicken. Pasta to me is a great pairing

I bought it a few weeks ago for a friends visit. She and I sat down to an Italian dinner that I made tonight. I opened the bottle at the start of cooking then decanted it before I served. The wine was smelled of flowers and went wonderfully with the meal. A must have!!!

The Banfi Chianti Classico is predominantly Sangiovese with small amounts of Canaiolo Nero and Cabernet Sauvignon. Medium dark ruby in color, it offers fresh dark fruit aromas of boysenberry and blackberry and a palate of flavorful ripe fruit. It also exhibits excellent balance and structure and a persistent finish. A lovely wine offered at a great price. 89 Points.

An international style emphasizing smoothness and quality over local character, this is warm with dark chocolate flavors, ready to enjoy with roast beef. A great buy.

A basic wine that's in proportion. The bouquet offers bacon, menthol and rubber along with nuances of espresso and modest complexity. Boysenberry and blackberry flavors carry notes of cinnamon and vanilla, while the feel is soft yet substantive. Not a thriller, but eminently drinkable.
