Color: Bright ruby. Bouquet: The bouquet on the nose is intense, with rich cherry and red berry aromas and leafy undertones. Flavor: On the palate it is silky, balanced, with medium body, refined tanning and a long flavorful finish of blackberry and chocolate. Ideal with red grilled meat, like Bistecca Fiorentina, and semi to well-aged cheeses

Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Chianti Classico is a tad too ripe for my tastes. You taste the heat of the vintage in those aromas of blackberry preserves and strawberry jam. Background notes of apricot and candied orange peel add to that characteristic hot vintage bouquet. I would suggest a near-term drinking window as a result.
