Love the old tanned leather and dried tobacco on this Italian red wine -- those mature, tertiary aromas that make a wine complex and intriguing. Balanced acidity for so many dishes from red meats to pasta in tomato sauce. Lovely.

Chianti Classico food pairings: stuffed roasted turkey, cheesy pizza, roast beef, pasta with meat sauce, char-grilled sausages.

Reviews and Ratings

Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Tasted April 2015.
This mature and evolved Italian red wine is a robust blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% other grape varieties. Finishes with anise and dark florals. - Community Wine Reviews
