Pizzolato Chianti

2015

  • Veneto, Italy

Blend: 90% Sangiovese, 5% Colorino, 5% Canaiolo

Tasting Notes: Beautiful ruby red color. The palate is soft with a pleasant acidity. Excellent persistence. Prevalence of red fruity notes of cherry and jam.

"Garnet black color. Jammy, fruity roasted aromas of dark cherry, eucalyptus, black raspberry, and lightly smoky tea box with a lively, dry medium-to-full body and a tingling, intricate, medium-long grilled blood orange, cherry compote, vanilla soaked plums, and roasted cherries finish with chewy, earthy tannins and heavy oak. Delicious and generous cherry-plum-berry flavors and generous toasty vanilla oak are perfect for drinking now, but the excellent balance and chewy tannins will hold this together and reward the imbiber with proper cellaring." – Tastings.com

Food Pairing: This wine is perfect when served at 60-65° F and enjoy with first courses, white meats and cheeses.

Aging: 3 Months in Bottle.
