This Chianti Classico is fruit forward with aromas of blueberry, cassis, blackberry, cherry, and red berries. In addition to fruit on the nose, it also has cinnamon, floral notes, earthy beets, and chocolate.
On the palate, it is medium bodied with silky tannins. The flavours are of dark berries and dark chocolate. The floral quality is also present in terms of flavours.
Tasted September 2018
Wine-Food Pairing: I enjoyed mine with a barbecued black bean burger served with spicy mayonnaise. This would pair just as well with barbecued pork chops, or with Italian sausage penne.
