Rocca di Castagnoli - Poggio a' Frati Chianti Classico Riserva 2011
Cherry red in the glass. A sumptuous bouquet of violets, elderberries, plums and cherries. Smoky aromas and chocolate are also present . On the palate this wine acts first cool, then juicy, with a nice berry fruit acidity and elegant tannins but-present. Great chianti.
