Chianti DOCG 2014

Palladio was the name of an architect from Venice who created many innovative designs during the Renaissance. This modern twist on a classic is a blend of 90% Sangiovese and 5% each of Merlot and Syrah that is vinified in stainless steel tanks and cement vats. The wine is then aged in stainless steel tanks and French oak barriques for 12 months. This creates a fresh, easy-to-drink wine that can easily please friends and guests.

Tasting Notes

This Chianti is bright ruby red, offering inviting aromas of black cherries, blueberries and elderberries, with undertones of tobacco and cracked black pepper. On the palate, this Chianti is fresh and easygoing, with soft tannins, refreshing acidity and a persistent finish. 

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with beef ravioli, barbecued meats, pasta e fagiole or minestrone soup.
