I truly enjoyed sipping from this average bottle while watching LSU win ugly over Alabama in a 3+ hour overtime struggle that set offensive football back a couple decades, in spite of rule changes during the same period that make scoring easier. I had no dog in the fight, but this Chianti help me survive the boredom of 15 total points from another "game of the century". Please.

Bright garnet hue, offering aromas of dry plums and chocolate; flavor profile has notes of plums, dried cherries and orange peel, supported by good acidity to a soft, integrated finish.

    Bright red sour cherry, creamy pepper and toasty nose. The palate is nice berry fruit, slightly tart Cedar and a long subtly pie cherry finish with some notes of strawberry. As the wine breathes a nice dusty floral character develops and the palate opens up with some brighter red berry on the finish.
