Vignamaggio "Terre Di Prenzano" 2004 wine review by (PB)

This previously reviewed wine is one of our faves because of the memories it holds of a fantastic Tuscan vacation we took with (NW) several years ago. This wine is made at the birth place of Mona Lisa which is where we roomed for a couple nights. Ahhhhhhhhhh...

This Chianti Classico is a nice cherry red with light bready aromas on opening with steely red fruit and spice notes. Very good example of the Sangiovese grape.

The palate has nice tannic structure with tight flavors and needs to be decanted.

With some air time, fresh cherry flavors are laying underneath a dried cherry core with a touch of licorice and a slight peppery finish. This is old world artistry and all at $15. Raise a glass but better still--visit Tuscany!
