This is such an underrated bottle of wine. It gets so easy to dismiss Chianti and especially those that are not the top bottlings of good producers. This is a really good bottle of wine and its available for under $20. Ruby in color. The nose has cherries, tea leaves, char and slight anise. On the palate, this is medium bodied with light tannins. A nice backbone of acidity. Flavors of cherries with some underlying forest floor. Good finish. This should be good for the next ten years. It went great with pasta and will work with most foods. A great pizza wine.
