FOUR STARS | Sam Kim - Wine Orbit "very easy to enjoy"
This delightful DOCG Chianti was brought into New Zealand by leading importer, Steve Bennett MW. The DOCG denomination is a sure sign of quality and this medium bodied expression of modern Sangiovese is bright and fresh, with savoury flavours of spicy red fruits and easy tannins. It's a perfect any time option with a nice deli-platter - but is sure to take your next pizza or pasta night up a notch.
Sam Kim writes "Attractively fruited and elegantly fragrant, the bouquet shows Black Doris plum, sweet cherry, floral and toasted nut characters, leading to a beautifully weighted palate that is finely textured and lingering. It is brightly fruited and supple with fine, polished tannins, making it very easy to enjoy."
