This is a nice solid Chianti for a very nice price. Ruby in color, clear and bright. The nose is dusty with cherries, anise and tea leaves. Light tannins. On the palate, sour cherries over slight forest floor. Good finish. This is very food friendly with excellent acidity. Will go great with pasta, pizza and fowl dishes. It should probably be drunk in the next few years but will probably be drinkable for five to seven if not at peak.
