Fattoria di Petroio Chianti Classico 2014
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
|Brand||Fattoria di Petroio|
Chianti Classico with a clearly classic look; intense but vibrant ruby red color. Intense and fruity nose impact, with delicate fresh fruit notes of plump prunes and orange rind that are followed by a more spicy note of fresh grass. On the palate, a noteworthy composition is immediately revealed, full and round and yet clean and dry in the mouth with elegant but strong tannins to sustain the fruity notes of wild berries and plums and prunes. Beautifully persistent. Food Pairing: The fine balance in this wine makes it a perfect compliment to many varieties of food: traditional hearty Tuscan soups, fresh pasta with vegetable or meat sauces, roasted, grilled or boiled meats, as well as, savory fish stews also easily a perfect match with Ethnic and oriental dishes.
This has muted aromas of tilled soil, stewed prune and a whiff of game. The light-bodied palate is slightly more expressive, showing sour cherry and a hint of dark culinary spice set against loose tannins. Drink through 2018.
