2016 Senesi Aretini Chianti Classico Riserva
Region: Tuscany, Italy
Winemaker: Mery Ferrara, Maurizio Castelli
Winery Established Date: 1971
Deep dark red colour with black tinged edges and a dark red hue. Spicy red currant and red cherry aromas merge with toasty cedar, tobacco and earthy dried herb notes. Well weighted the palate has an even spread of ripe red currant and cherry fruits over a background of earth, toasty cedar and dried herbs. Spicy finish with slightly chalky tannins and bright acidity.
The high acidity allows Sangiovese to match well with all manners of food. It’s one of the few wines that will not get lost when paired with rich, tomato based sauces and this wine absolutely sings with with pizza margherita! The “riserva” means the wine has spent and extra 6 months in oak and beacuse of this, it will be your friendly allay with chargrilled meat and robust sides. Buon Apetito!
