2009 Chianti Classico
Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Canaiolo, Trebbiano, and Malvasia
It is a beautiful, elegant red wine with a harmonious structure. It displays pretty aromas and flavors of crushed violets, berries, black cherries, cedar and spice. Medium bodied with velvety tannins, a plush texture and balanced acidity. Touches of mineral, herbs and earth add to the complexity of this wine and echo on the delicious finish. This wine is drinkable now but will continue to improve with further cellaring.
