If Chianti were made as 100% Sangiovese, they would have nothing on our version. Hitting all the beautiful elegant notes of cherry, truffles, rhubarb, white chocolate and nutmeg. An almost cola like bouquet to boot. All complimented by earth tones with a soft finish and just the right amount of tartness to tackle any Italian based cuisine. Our estate offering walks the line of a bold classic expression of elegance juxtaposed to a dashing rough character. Like putting the top down on a vintage fire engine red alfa-romeo spider, always commanding attention on the road.
