Overview One of a few Chiantis to make this year’s Wine Trials, this wine fits perfectly into the Chianti mold. It has a distinctive aroma of animals and manure that is euphemistically labeled “barnyard,” but enough red fruit to please most New World drinkers. Drinking it, we can’t help but think of little farmhouses in Tuscany and plates piled high with freshly made pasta.

Nose Red fruit, dried herbs, barnyard, a little spice.

Mouth Our blind tasters appreciated the continuing fruit, as well as the hint of leather and the lean acidity that will help it pair with tomato dishes.
