Cherries on nose joined by oak spice, lavender. Acidity is huge! Red fruit and spice flavors. Red licorice on finish.

Classic Chianti Classico with crunchy red cherries, lilting acidity & dusty tannins. Doesn't hold well to the next day, so drink up!

Light garne with orange hue. Fresh ripe red cherry and red licorice, touch of cinnamon and vanilla. Pretty ripe but definitely some dustiness, sweet tobacco and earth on palate. High acid.

Dry crisp and tangy. Smooth but a bit empty finish.
