Black ruby color. Aromas of leather, allspice, cigar box, oregano, and dried cherries with a satiny, vibrant, dryish medium body and a polished, cheery dark chocolate shavings, dandelion, and gentian finish with dusty tannins and moderate oak flavor. A food-friendly Chianti with wide appeal.

Tuscany Chianti Normale

Wine Glass Zinfandel.jpg
Serve in a Zinfandel Wine Glass
The Chianti zone, situated between the cities of Florence and Siena in Tuscany, constitutes the zone where a Chianti normale can be produced. The wine is made primarily with Sangiovese, with other grapes in the blend being local varieties such as Canaiolo or Colorino or international varieties such as Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon.

Chianti normale is light to medium-bodied with red cherry fruit, moderate tannins and tart acidity; it has always been popular in restaurants, especially as the prices are moderate. Drink young (one to two years of age) with pizza, lighter pastas and simple chicken or pork dishes.
