Juicy cherries, a luscious mouthfeel, herbaceous nose, soft tannins -- classy Chianti for sure

Classico! But kind of more robust than a usual Chianti! Earthy, but not too heavy!

Tart but not too much. Dry - has a little bite to the dryness, yet still smooth.

Loved this 2015 - pared with pasta carbonara and prosciutto, Mellon and Buffalo mozzarella at Alex Cafe- Roma.

Disappointing bottle, at least relative to the 2013 vintage

The quintessential Chianti. Perfect structure and balance of fruit and tannins. Good depth, length and mouthfeel. Has notes of olive and tobacco, but great Sangiovese fruit shows through.
