Northern Italy Sun-dried Tomato and Italian Sausage Risotto featuring RiceSelect™ Arborio Rice
RiceSelect™ Arborio Rice has a naturally creamy texture, which makes it the perfect choice for risotto dishes and Sangiovese Wines
The nose showed ripe crushed raspberries with leather and hint of roasted nuts. On the palate it had a medium body but with acidity to spare which counter the red berry fruit and shortened it's length. Herbs and red berries lingered through the finish with hints of tannin. I doubt this wine improve much with time, but at this price, it's worth putting a couple away to see.
The wine itself has a lovely deep ruby color in the glass and presents a nose of leather, licorice and some floral notes that almost feel chewy as you breath them in. The taste is somewhat fruit forward, with flavors or ripe plum and tart cherry at the front end, transitioning to some wonderful earthy, spicy notes midpalate. The well structured tannins and bright acidity make for a lovely smooth, long finish. It's exactly what you would expect from a nice Chianti Classico.

Made from grapes from a further selection, first in the vineyard and afterward in the winery, this Riserva consists of Sangiovese (90%) and Canaiolo and Colorino (10%). It has excellent potential for aging. This wine is widely distributed on the domestic and international markets.
