Castello Banfi Chianti Classico Riserva 2008
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. It superbly accompanies meat dishes and typical Tuscan cuisine.
nice nose of cherries....smooth tannins accompanied by a full bodied lingering finish...
The wine is so smooth, it is almost sweet. Excellent bouquet, gentle finish. Hint of cherry and oak. Most pleasant. Great value wine.
