Wine Review: This very dark purple wine is quite impressive. It opens with a very attractive black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very well balanced, and smooth as silk. The flavor profile is a delicious, mild black cherry with nicely infused gentle oak. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are very going. This elegant Chianti Classico Riserva is quite food friendly. I would serve it with veal parmigianna. Yum! - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Colour: Intense ruby red. Aromas: Soft fruits, currants, black cherry, spicy notes. Palate: The attack on the palate is firm, very full, red fruit and spices with dense and even tannins that allow a smooth and balanced finish. Serve with: First courses with meat sauces, roasted or grilled meats.
