The wine is deep ruby red in colour. On the nose, it has aromas of sour cherry and plums leading to notes of leather and tobacco. On the palate, it has great depth of flavour, with juicy fruit and supple tannins, giving way to a silky-smooth texture. It has a great structure and finishes with a fine mineral note.
Pretty cherry, raspberry, iron, tar and smoke flavors are the hallmarks of this supple Chianti Classico, which is balanced and firms up nicely on the finish. Drink now through 2030. 10,000 cases made, 3,000 cases imported.
