Ruffino Chianti Classico Aziano 2013
"Brilliant ruby red in color, with an intriguing, typical aroma of violets. In the mouth, it is dry and medium-bodied, with cherry fruit flavor, refreshing acidity, and medium tannin. The overall impression is a well-balanced, harmonious wine, which is complex but not imposing." -Winery
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 tomato stew.
