Made with grapes grown in the Montalbano district of Chianti, which is located between the beautiful cities of Florence and Siena, the 2003 Palladio Chianti is the real deal. Elegant, with a touch of dusty earthy aromas followed by a mouthful of red-berry freshness, this new-style Chianti will pair seamlessly with dinners of roast chicken, pasta or pizza. - Leslie Sbrocco
Palladio's 2003 offers a lot of Chianti for the price. Its dark plum/ruby color is followed by sweet aromas of strawberries, cherries, and a hint of saddle leather. This soft, tasty, light to medium-bodied effort is an ideal quaffing wine to consume over the next year.
