Round and open, offering cherry, raspberry and spice flavors. Leaves a fresh impression on the finish. Drink now.
There's cherry and licorice on the nose of this crisp, lighter-style wine. Bright, tart fruit and cocoa accents follow on the palate, and it's bright and moderately tannic on the finish. A good pizza-pasta partner, this will even out over the next 12 months and drink well through 2004.
If you think that Chianti is a big, heavy wine, be prepared to be surprised. Melini is an old (founded in 1705) and respected Tuscan estate, and renowned winemaker Nunzio Capurso has crafted a soft, smooth and most enjoyable Chianti. Enjoy with pasta, pizza or sharp provolone.
Rich, with a floral wild berry edge to the cherry and strawberry core, this red also picks up a licorice note as it plays out. Firm, yet balanced and long. Drink now through 2016.
Bright and gentle, this peppery red feels ripe and soft. It has the spicy bite of pepperoncini to match a charry, thin-crusted pizza.
