Natalie's Score: 91/100

An earthy, full-bodied wine with smoky dark red fruit and good, mouth-watering acidity. Best consumed with hearty dishes involving tomato sauce. Mixed spices and black raspberry on the finish. A wine to satisfy a savage thirst (for good wine).

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

Perfect Pasta and Tomato Sauce Wine

Alain Charpentier Sommelier Student rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This Chianti Classico wine is produced by the thousand year old winery, Canonia a Cerreto, located 12 km from the pretty city of Siena in Tuscany. This wine is composed of 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot.
This medium-bodied red has aromas of raspberry jam and some earthy tones. On the palate, this wine delivers notes of cherry and the tannins and acidity are well balanced. This very pleasant ready to drink wine has a medium length finish.
Pairing suggestion: spaghetti with meat sauce
Situated in the heart of Chianti, Canonica a Cerreto's vineyards enjoy a southern-facing aspect and are planted in clay and limestone soils. Excellent intensity and depth of aromas here, with strawberry and cherry fruit mingling with rich vanilla, sweet-spice, tar, smoke, earth, leather and cocoa notes. Superbly well structured and offering impressive replays. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, March 2013
