The wine

FermentedGrape.com tasting notes

For the price (around £13) this was great value and a good example of a classic Chianti. There was plenty of red and black cherry plus plum and raspberry fruit on the palate with a nice herby, slightly spiced finish. Then there is the Sangiovese acidity which I love with pasta but with finesse. You can't go too far wrong at the price point.
