Ruby-red tending towards garnet.
Elegant, with delicate scents of violets.
Well-balanced and dry, with good structure and a velvety texture.
Wine Advocate 87 points - The 2010 Chianti Classico shows berry fruit and leather over a lean and streamlined mouthfeel. You get easy-drinking satisfaction with lively acidity and smooth tannins that would pair with poultry or pork dishes. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2015 (Aug 2013)

Spice and black plum aromas add a distinct note of dark chocolate with airing. Tart black-fruit and spicy oak flavors give way to warm tannins. Pair with roasted red meats and game.
It is a perfect accompaniment for the richly-flavored dishes of the traditional Chianti cuisine, as well as for grilled meats and mature cheeses.
