Fattoria le Sorgenti Chianti Colli Fiorentini 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The name 'Respiro' simply means breath. "To stop making Chianti for us would be like stopping breathing" is the phrase used by the passionate and dedicated Ferrari family. Rarely do you meet a family as focused and as in touch with the land and its produce. Grown high up in a natural amphitheatre, the grapes from the 'La Sala' vineyard and feature primarily Sangiovese but with a small percentage of the white grape Trebbiano added ot give the wine freshness and vitality

Upfront tiz mellow and fruity, wood envelopes the rounded pleasantness, then a savoury edge develops with tannins raising and acidity cleansing. A long mellow finish, with an edge of chocolate covered cherries, porcini and something 'autumnal'. Alcohol 13.5%. Chianti should really be enjoyed with food - the medium-bodied quite acidic wines were created for food. Tomato based dishes are often quoted as ideal matches; my choice would be a rich, slow cooked, Bolognese based pasta dish http://www.spittoon.biz/fattoira_le_sorgenti_respiro_c.html
