On the palate, harmonious fruit flavors with velvety tannins, elegant texture and a long, persistent finish.*Warehouse Case SaleCase Sales OnlySale ends August 31 unless stock sells out earlier.*
The wine is a bright ruby color in the glass with great clarity and somewhat lighter body which is typical of Chianti. The nose exhibits notes of green herbs and tart cherries with light undertones of leather and tar. The taste is very fruit forward with notes of raspberries and plum with bright acidity that transitions to some tart cherry midpalate. The finish is quite nice, with some well structured tannins supporting a smooth dry finish that lingers.

Notes of bright cherry with layers of chocolate, spice, and leather. Very nice for the price (under 15$). Drink with a chicken parm or a vegetable stew.
