Santa Margherita Chianti Classico 2008 Wine Review
Lots of acidity that cries out for a hearty meat dish. Black fruit with smoke and tannins. Decant 2 hours. Chianti Classico food pairings: thick, peppery grilled steak, homemade pizza featuring steak strips.

The Santa Margherita Chianti Classico 2008 is a great full bodied red wine. Full of Cherry and fruit with a hint of smokiness...this paired well with the spicy Chinese food. Tasted October 24,2013 (91/100)
|A brooding and compact Chianti Classico, it features tar, plum, black cherry, dried herbs and earthy aromas. Quite dry with a little more weight on its frame than many Chiantis, it’s mouthfilling and flavourful with dense black fruit, earth and leather notes along with some peppery spice. The tannins are fairly serious. Source: Vintages Wine Catalogue.|
