Tasting Notes

The Chianti Classico has a vivid ruby color and a strong nose of fresh red fruit with hints of cherry. This is a well-structured wine with a juicy finish.

"Made with Chianti Classico tradition in mind, this compelling Riserva has measured tones of blueberry, cherry, almond paste and root beer. It exhibits medium-intensity notes of fresh forest fruit on the close. It's simple but extremely genuine...."

“Ferrous tannins give the ripe fruit in this wine a rustic edge. It should soften with another year or two, then serve it with roast lamb.”

“Good lean aromas and flavors of crushed currant and berry, against a background of fresh oak. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a tasty finish of fruit and oak. Best after 2008.”
