Light to med body. Slight sweetness, slight aluminum flavor, good for the price

Dry, robust flavor that develops as you drink. Flavorful. Appreciated more with the second glass.

Very drinkable, fruity, can't really taste the alcohol, liked it even more the day after I opened it.

This Chianti Superiore is actually 70% Sangiovese & 30% Merlot/Cabernet, and is aged in stainless steel rather than oak. The result is a juicy, easy drinking wine with a nose of roasted tomato, and dried cherry. The pallate is fairly simple and fruit forward with strawberry and cherry standing out, but it fades quickly with tinge of alcohol on the finish. Did pair very well with cacciatore salami and a variety of hard cheeses on a rainy afternoon! ($10) [8/28/18]

My first ever taste of Chianti. Bored at the grocery store, I put this in the cart hesitantly. When Henry graduates from high school I am moving to Italy. Bonjourno 2028!!!!
