Wine Review: This bright garnet red colored wine opens with a fragrant black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a mild black currant, with a hint of plum and gentle oak. The finish is dry and its mild tannins are sticky and show some length. I would pair this food friendly and good value Chianti with spaghetti and meatballs. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Intense ruby red colored with fruit-forward aromas with some floral notes. Round with well balanced acidity and fruit. Ideal with red-sauced pastas, roasted or grilled meats and aged cheeses.
