This one is a little young to drink, but it's still pretty good if decanted for 1/2 to 1 hour.
Very fruit forward, with flavors of cherry and strawberry bursting out on the nose. Very fruity, yet with a nice cool minerality. Soft and smooth. Warm bramble flavors. The finish is softly sweet with a chocolate finish. 100% sangiovese, yet it tastes like there's some merlot in it.
Santa Margherita is a go to in our house. I just discovered this chianti classico. I love it because it is not as tart as some chianti's I have had. Nice rich dark fruit. Great with winter beefs and stews.
dark, aromas of cherry and powder, follows up nicely with strong fruit entry matched to spicy tannin, complex

Wine Tasting NotesDeep, bright ruby red. Nuances of wild berries, spices and cherries. Well integrated oak, blackberry and iris stand out.

The wine is redolent of cherry, almond, cola and blue flower and would pair well with pizza or... Wine Enthusiast. A Sangiovese wine from in Italy. 2006 Santa Margherita Chianti Classico 3000ml
Deep ruby red color. Sweet aromatic sensations of wood envelope ripe, spicy fruit. Mouth-filling fruit impresses one with its roundedness and gentle tannins; sensations of ripe, sweet fruit lead into a spicy aftertaste. This is an elegant wine that reflects fully the characteristics of its terroir and is also a modern interpretation that embodies Italy's most classic vineyard area.
