Ruby in color, clear and bright. The nose has a "dusty attic" quality to it along with cherries. Light bodied. On the palate, light tannins. Cherries turning a bit candied on the finish. Good acidity. This is a bit lighter in style but still true to its Chianti roots. Better with food than on its own. This would be nice with a creamy Tuscan Chicken dish.
