Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Chianti Classico opens with a fragrant pomegranate and craisin bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty gentle red raspberry and faint minerality blend. I also detected hints of oak, tart cherry and strawberry licorice. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are managed and linger nicely. This wine is rather food friendly and would pair well with veal parnigianna. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A well-proportioned, elegant body, dark berry, fresh spice flavors, intense, smooth taste. Great ability to pair with dark sauce pastas, boiled meats with spicy sauces and aged cold cuts.
