Light red. Vinous red cherry and violet nose exudes considerable charm. Fresh, lively and sweet in the mouth, with syrupy strawberry and red cherry flavors. Bright and fresh if uncomplicated on the finish. A delicious wine that's perfect with pizza and simple pasta dishes.
With bright acidity and ripe, juicy cherry and strawberry flavors, this wine is ready to serve with your next pasta dish.
Brilliant ruby red in color, with an intriguing, typical aromas of violets. In the mouth, it is dry and medium-bodied, with cherry fruit flavor, refreshing acidity, and medium tannins. The overall impression is a well-balanced, harmonious wine, which is complex but not imposing.
Here's a steal: A Chianti with clean lines, juicy red fruit in the strawberry and cherry tomato range and light, green olive tannins. It's simple and tastes real, with the length of flavor to stand up to a meaty pasta Bolognese.
Cherry and currant flavors strike a winning chord in this well-proportioned, well-balanced Chianti that puts its focus squarely on the fruit. Also shows a nice touch of chocolate and spice on the finish, adding to its appeal.
