- Aromas: Red cherry, dried strawberry, spiced apple, oregano, leather, date, and alder smoke.
Flavors/experience: Dry. Medium-bodied. Medium-high acidity. Ripe red cherry, pomegranate, salinity, and green tea. Fine, bitter tannin. A medium-long finish showing thyme oil and white pepper. Very good quality.
- Specifications: A blend of 90% Sangiovese, with some Colorino and Malvasia Nera.
- Appellation: From the Chianti Classico DOCG, Tuscany, Italy.
- Alcohol content: 13.5%
- Sommelier Tip: Decant, the longer the better. We attribute this to the refined and high level of tannin that helps prevent oxidation. 72 hours after opening, this wine is singing.
