Dark garnet color. Aromas and flavors of red cherry, fennel and star anise, rose, leather, and wisps of barn yard, and bitter cocoa with a satiny, crisp, dry medium body and a tingling, delightful, medium-length finish that exhibits notes of strawberry cherry fruit leather, star anise, fig, and tobacco. A wine that makes you want to order an extra course and linger on the piazza in Sienna watching the horses.

Tuscany Chianti

Wine Glass Zinfandel.jpg
Serve in a Zinfandel Wine Glass
Red wines from the seven regions of Tuscany that fall under the Chianti DOCG contain a strong backbone of Sangiovese grapes with room for the addition of Canaiolo, Trebbiano, Malvasia, and a few other lesser-known varietals.
