Banfi 2003 Chianti Classico Riserva

Hey, did you know they make wine in Italy? We keep hearing so much about wines from South America, South Africa, California, we sometimes forget about the places we first associated with wine. Check out some hot Chianti action below.

This Chianti Classico exemplifies a modern approach to making this very traditional wine. It’s a satisfying middleweight with good flavor intensity and well-balanced structure, wrapping classic flavors in a sleek package. It has enticing aromas of tart red cherries, saddle leather and a hint of pungent dried herbs. In the mouth, it delivers bright flavors of dried red cherries against the classic Tuscan background of leather and oriental spice. The finish is long and aromatic, with crisp acidity supporting the lingering flavor of red Michigan pie cherries.
