Lighter red. Still spicy but not overpowering. Great with pasta and red sauce

A good ol dirty italian- soil/leather/poopy notes, plus dried cherry, red currant, star anise and chocolate. And dust. Lotsa dust.

Stereotypical #Chianti Classico #wine, only better! Floral red roses, quick damp soil and robust red berry aromas. Delicate, light body, acidic with chalky tannins, flavors start with berries and fade gradually to violets, and cranberry. Not fruit forward, but fades on palate. Opened 1/8/17 pairing with Steak, grilled red onions & peppers.

Very fruity, lots of cherries. Superb tannins and pleasant acidity. Great choice for that pasta. Bem frutado, acidez deliciosa, taninos gostosos. Vai cair bem com a massa do domingo

2013 Carpineto chianti classico riserva !
The nose is bla bla bla. The over all impression is a light wine with a tart finish. Actually, that is all I have to say.
