This is a nice, straightforward Chianti that is drinking beautifully right now. Purple in color with some ruby swirls. The nose is nice with cherries, baking spices and tea leaves. Medium bodied. An excellent backbone of acidity. On the palate, lots of cherries with a slight undertone of forest floor. Nice finish. Drink this over the next four to six years. It is a nice choice for pizza or pasta with a tomato based sauce.
