Translucent ruby. Aromas of forest fruits (raspberry, plum) and a hint of woody spice. Medium bodied with fine grained/mineral inflected tannins. Just the thing to pair with pasta bolognese after a long day entertaining.

Very nice Chianti. Light body, pleasant ripe cherry and hint of strawberry flavor. Let it breathe and open to a "2nd day" level, and it's wonderful. Great with salad and pizza...but likely nice with pasta, as well. Really like it.

Eucalyptus and damp earth on the nose. Pleasantly herbal darker berry fruit in a medium bodied crisp style.
