Chianti Classico DOCG 2007

Livernano has emerged as one of the premier estates in the Chianti region, producing multiple award-winning, highly-rated wines. This traditional-style Chianti Classico offering is a blend of 80% Sangiovese and 20% Merlot. It possesses all of the lively aromatics, complexity and rich fruit of Livernano’s Riserva version, but is crafted to enjoy right now.

Bright ruby-red in color, this Chianti Classico shows vibrant aromas of ripe black cherry, violets and forest floor. On the palate, the wine exhibits beautiful structure and well-integrated tannins.
