WineScores' Review


I love the classic Chianti character in this widely available and consistent Tuscan. Expect juicy cherry and strawberry jam, leather, tealeaf, rose petals and fine spice. It has an earthy tone to the palate with leather, tobacco and spicy red fruit. Expect lively acidity in this food wine and a long finish carrying cedar and and toasted spice.
Pairs with slow cooked meats, classic Italian pizzas or hearty tomato sauces.
