Sangiovese & Merlot
Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico
From the producer Conti Nunzi this elegant Chianti Classico. This Tuscan wine is primarily constituted from Sangiovese grapes but with a small addition of Merlot. The blend is just right as this Chianti delights the palate, rendering a fine example of, & credence to, why Chianti is one of the best-known appellations of Italy & the world for that matter. In hue, a lovely ruby red color. The nose is redolent of red berry fruit which is enhanced by deeper toasted hints of coffee & chocolate. On the palate the bouquet carries over nicely, accompanied by smooth, enveloping tannins & a long, lingering finish. Despite its youth, this wine demonstrates a very nice texture. Far be it from this stand-up Chianti Classico to disappoint regarding its renowned as a food wine. This wine would be a great accompaniment to pasta dishes with light sauces, superb for first courses of the Tuscan tradition such as Tagliatelle with Ragu of Chianina.
