Nose opens with cherry accompanied by earthy notes
Full bodied on the palate
Decent depth on the finish with cherry, red currant, and herbs
This is a fairly straight-forward Chianti Classico at a reasonable price of $15 or so. It has a profile of red fruit with some savory notes that create depth and richness. In fact, as a young non-reserve wine it's better than the San Felice Chianti Classico Riserva 2008 which I recently had. Enjoy with hearty Italian fare, and raise a glass!
