When you consider this wine will easily go for over a decade - it's a bargain.
It has the signature ruby colour of Sangiovese and smells of berries and cherries. In the mouth it's all about structure. Chianti is a mid-weight wine that's built on acid and tannin. This is what gives the wine the backbone to live so long and what makes it so good with food. Of course you can enjoy it now with its lean and savoury character and complex dark fruit flavours.
“A wine with plenty of dried cherry and citrus fruit aromas and flavours. Medium body, slightly chewy tannins and a fresh finish. How Chianti Classico should be. Drink or hold.” James Suckling, 91 points.
