Wine Review: This ruby colored Chianti Classico opens with a black cherry and black currant like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a ripe plum with nicely integrated minerality and mild old oak. I also detected hints of dark chocolate as well. The finish is dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. This wine is very food friendly and would pair well with a hearty veal stew with red wine and sweet peppers. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Colour: dark ruby red. Bouquet: full and intense but at the same time sweet and fruity, with hints of black soft fruit. Pleasant overtone of noble wood, vanilla and cocoa and a surprising cherry finish. Flavour: dry, firmly structured, austere and elegant; well balanced. Excellent persistence of the flavor on the palate. Pairings: This wine can accompany an entire meal, especially thick soups, all kinds of meat and half-mature cheese.

Organic status: not organic
