Chianti Classico (Tuscany) The wine shows a brilliant ruby red color and nuances of ruby red, moderate transparency. The nose has clean, pleasing and elegant aromas of black cherry, blueberry, plum and violet followed by good hints of carob, licorice and vanilla. In mouth reveals good correspondence to the nose, a slightly tannic attack however balanced by alcohol, intense flavors and good body. The finish is persistent with flavors of plum, black cherry and blueberry. This Chianti Classico ages for 15 months in barrique followed by 12 months in steel tanks and 4 months in bottle.
