Classic Chianti at a great price. Leather, wood and red cherry. Dry medium bodied. Tried with flat bread, caramelized onions and goat cheese.

Holding on remarkably well for an 8 year old CCR. Typical, if slightly muted, red/sour cherry flavours with some leathery notes and finishing with the telltale fine acidity one would expect from Chianti.
