MY RATING: 7.5/10
IN A NUTSHELL: A kind of nice and somewhat robust Chianti
ORIGIN: Italy (Tuscany, Chianti)
VARIETALS: Sangiovese 90%, Canaiolo 10%
SAQ PRICE: $21.00
I am new to Chiantis and was prepared for it to be less “aromatic and robust” than the SAQ label suggested. Indeed, it does not knock your socks off, but it has a nice leathery and cheesy smell, nice berry tastes and a smooth enough aftertaste. It is not very spicy. I would definitely buy this again, although it is probably a bit expensive for a “Pizza Friday” wine! NB: it is better the second night, after breathing a bit.
