Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Chianti was enjoyed by those who tried it. It opens with a mild vanilla cola bouquet with a hint of oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and very easy to enjoy. The flavor profile is a tasty mild plum with hints of old oak and gentle black cherry. The finish is dry and it fine tannins and flavors linger slightly. This wine is very food friendly and would pair well with veal parmigiana. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Red cherries are supported by darker fruit aromas and hints of licorice on the nose. The palate opens up with juicy red fruit notes. Understated spice characters dominate the mid palate followed by zippy acidity that lend freshness to the long minerally finish. The fine grained tannins help give this wine its solid structure.
