Color is dark red, typical of a Chianti. Aromas of cherries and plums are present. Some time in the decanter brings out more aromas. Nice fruit flavors and some tannin.

Cherry fruit, some floral in the nose. Nice cherry flavour, basic chianti, good acidity, nice long finish, went very well with pizza
