Narun P

100% Sangiovese. Deep purplish garnet, compact rim with semi opaque center. The nose definitely reveals riper, sweeter fruit (tasted alongside similarly priced 2006, and 2010 red Bordeaux) with some evolved characters. On the palate, the fruit profile shows distinct sunny terroir of Tuscany with lots of sweet ripe fruit (borderline jammy), sun-dried tomato. Med high tannin and med acidity, with med body. Amazing value (approx $20). Already ready for business. 89.

Drinking well now, classic, elegant and a touch of rustic. So typical, so drinkable and so lovely.

Nice chianti, though not usually our varietal choice. Chose it specifically to pair with rich pizza. Nice balance throughout without much tannic finish.

Excellent full bodied chianti. Dark colors. Ripe fruit with a hint of leather. Floral nose a little sweet finish. Medium tannins and acidity. So smooth and easy to drink. 14.5% abv

Red cherries and tabacco spice on nose with a dry hay and oak backend, flavors follow through with tannic grip and nice length.
