Dark and manly from the get-go, with aromas of melted brown sugar, black cherry and charbroiled beef. Next up you’ll encounter fresh red fruit, peppy acids and enough body to provide balance and a perceived creaminess. Very easy to like.
Cherries, candied fruit and blue flowers denote a traditional Chainti and add a touch of sweetness to the nose. This wine has good persistency and presents more cherry-berry flavors on the finish.
This is a wine with bursting red fruit and a solid dose of minerality that hits the nose in a solid and decisive fashion. Dig a bit deeper, and subtle notes of prune, coffee, dark chocolate, dried violet and rose petal appear. Tannins and acidity fall nicely into place.
This well-priced Riserva vineyard-designate Chianti Rufina opens with tertiary aromas of dark stone and spice followed by ripe fruit, prune and plum. Crisp acidity keeps the palate refreshed.
Easygoing and fresh with dark fruit tones of plum and dried prune, this Riserva Chianti Rufina would pair with pork or veal stew. The sweet elements in those meat dishes would nicely offset the wine’s natural crispness.
The formula for traditional Chianti sees Sangiovese blended with white grape varieties for a fruitier nose, fresher mouthfeel and an easy-to-approach drink. This Chianti follows that tradition with its blend of Sangiovese, Malvasia and Trebbiano. The nose offers forest berry and blue flowers with background notes of marzipan, minerals and crushed mint. And there’s…
Nemus pairs the light fruit and crisp acidity of Sangiovese against the hearty firmness of Cabernet Sauvignon to produce an informal, food-friendly wine that would match pasta dishes and pizza with fresh mozzarella.
Light, fresh and clean as a whistle. Here’s an easygoing Chianti that pushes red-fruit aromas toward a palate that’s zesty and full of crisp cherry and raspberry flavors. Some might find it too tangy and racy; but if you like a leaner version of red wine it will do the trick.
