The 2007 Chianti Classico is absolutely delicious and very aromatic with plums, sour cherry, violet and cedar on the nose. This wine is light to medium body with refreshing acidity and drying tannins. The finish is long, spicy with a sweet and sour excitement, which I love about Sangiovese. A Chianti Classico with aging potential from a great vintage and a superb food companion.
