With its violet, berry, spice and leather sensations, this savory blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot displays the quintessential perfume of a youthful Chianti Classico. The juicy wild cherry and ripe raspberry flavors are accented by notes of cracked black pepper and hints of grilled herbs that add depth. Refined and delicious. Drink 2014–2018. Trilussa Wine, J.W. Sieg Wines.
