Good, reliable chianti classico. Tasty, tangy, medium bodied sangiovese. Does alright with pizza/pasta, but not the great pairing you'd expect. Almost a little bit of a cocktail chianti, definitely more fruit than acid.

Tight, linear, tonic and firm, this textbook Sangiovese opens a window on Chianti Classico tradition and territory. Itandrsquo;s an authentic wine on every level, from the purity of its aromas to its natural pairing ease with all sorts of meat and pasta dishes.

On the herbaceous side and high-toned, showing floral, berry and mineral flavors. This is distinctive and intense, gaining complexity with aeration. Decant now, or give this some time. Best from 2013 through 2020.

Bright red. Highly floral nose of redcurrant, sour red cherry and minerals shows a light, vinous quality. Then bright and mouthwatering on the palate, with a piercing laser beam of acidity lifting the delicate pomegranate and redcurrant flavors. Finishes fresh and long, with youthfully chewy tannins and lingering red fruit and violet notes. Typical fresh Chianti thatandrsquo;s just begging for you to start eating.

Winemaker's Notes:

Intense ruby red color with whiffs of cherry and fresh berries in the nose. The dry wine, with elegant, balanced tannins and minerals, is characterized by a good acidity and a long, persistent finish. Recommended serving temperature: 18°C. Suggested Pairings: First courses such as pasta. Meat dishes and moderately aged cheeses.
