Clear, dark ruby. Shy nose of leathery black cherry. Echoed on the medium light bodied palate with a little dirty black tea for good measure. Medium tannins and juicy medium plus acidity. A simple but satisfying Chianti Riserva that will make a great accompaniment to simple but satisfying Italian/Mediterranean fare. Tuesday night pizza wine to begin your ramp up to the weekend.

Decent but a little thin. Prefer Casalino for just a couple bucks more.
