Tasting Notes

This Chianti Classico is a blend of Sangiovese 90%, Merlot 5% and Colorino 5%. It is ruby red in colour with intense fruity aromas of blackberry, hints wood, vanilla and cocoa. The palate is dry, firmly structured and elegant. A well balanced wine, with excellent persistence of flavour on the palate.

Our Thoughts

After trying this for the first time a month or so ago, I was quite pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this wine. It is full bodied, velvety smooth with a generous bouquet of fruit and oak aromas. On the palate, the balance of fruit and oak is pleasing and the tannins are well integrated. This is the perfect everyday red, not only for being a great versatile wine to pair with, but it’s also at a fantastic price point at $24/bottle. Highly recommended with any classic Italian dishes or simply enjoy on its’ own!
