Wine Review: This ruby colored Chianti Riserva from Poggiotondo is very good and truly Old World in style. It opens with a fragrant cedar and leather bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and slightly acidic. The flavor profile is a mineral infused tart cherry with notes of old oak. I also detected a dash of black pepper. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins stick around for an extended period of time. I would pair this Chianti with Italian beef braciole. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Intense and complex aromas of dark berry fruits, green leafy herbs and a dark chariness. The complexity continues onto the palate with dark fruits, savory herbs, spices and hints of tar. Fine, almost juicy tannins fill the mouth and lead to a long, minerally driven finish.
