Dusty ruby color. Aromas and flavors of juicy plum, lingonberry preserves, soda bread, earthy mushrooms, and herbed dried tomatoes with a satiny, vibrant, dry light-to-medium body and a smooth, delightful, medium-to-long finish displaying notes of hints of leather and beets with moderate oak flavor. A juicy and earthy Chianti.

Tuscany Chianti

Wine Glass Zinfandel.jpg

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.
