"A lively version, offering a smooth texture and an elegant profile for the cherry, strawberry and floral notes. Well-integrated, with a moderate structure, this lingers with mineral and tobacco elements. Drink now through 2032. 6,700 cases made, 2,500 cases imported. -BS" (WS)

Winery Notes:
Sangiovese dominates this classic Tuscan blend rendering a bold wine that boasts aromas of ripe red berries and subtle nuances of spice. Smaller percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot add finesse with soft notes of violets and tea leaves. Round, velvety tannins mark the finish. Following vinification in stainless steel, this Chianti Classico is aged in French and American oak barrels for 8 months.
