(Past tasting 24 Feb 2013) Dry, yet with interesting honey notes
|Region:||Italy » Tuscany » Chianti|
Decidedly earthy with rather intense leather, beef, hickory, sage and cranberry aromas. Light and fresh in the mouth, this delivers bright cranberry and raspberry fruit supported by soft tannins and lively acids that really perk up the back end. The fr...

Not bad for under $10! Read More
