Natalie's Score: 92/100

Smoky cigar box and dried herbs on the nose, extremely dry palate, full-bodied and subtle. Earthy not fruity. Dedicated to those who love the slow unfolding of sensual pleasure in the glass. Could use some cellar time. Decant 1-2 hours.

Chianti Classico Riserva food pairings: meat-sauce ravioli, pesto, beef stew.

Perfect Pasta and Tomato Sauce Wine

Deep almandine with black reflections and almandine rim. The bouquet is rich, with bright berry fruit supported by dusky slightly greenish acidity and clean spice, with some underbrush and some cedar mingled with hints of chalk dust. Quite young but there's quite a bit going on; it's much more complex than Peppoli and more traditional in feel. On the palate it's medium bodied, with bright cherry fruit supported by deft vegetal-laced berry fruit acidity and pleasing savory accents, while the tannins are fairly smooth, though they do have a youthful Sangiovese burr and flow into a long fresh finish that combines berry fruit with savory accents and a tannic underpinning. Pleasant in a more traditional key and will drink quite well with red meats, especially off the grill. Score - 2 Stars out of 3 (Very Good to Excellent) Source: Kyle Phillips, Italian Wine Review, May 7, 2012
