Wine Review: This slightly opaque ruby colored Chianti opens with a fragrant ripe black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light to medium bodied, balanced, a little thin, smooth and easy going. The flavor profile is a very mild black cherry with gentle notes of old oak. There is also just a touch of plum in the background. The finish is dry and its fine tannins make it food friendly. This offering is a simple entry level wine. I would serve it with pizza or spaghetti. Enjoy - Ken

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