Chianti Classico Banfi 2003 (PB)

This Tuscan red is full with room filling bouquet of big plump plummy and blackberry notes.. In the mouth it is really placid with delicate flavors of Sangiovese yet somewhat atypical for the grape. It is a little peppery, lively and flavors of raspberries and black cherries. It stands up well to a heartily smoked BBQ rack of ribs that were like shoe leather but with nice smokey flavors.

For $13, this is your basic, decent Chianti and besides, I really liked the label. Now, raise a glass!
