Leonardo Chianti DOCG 2014

Sangiovese from Italy - Tuscany
Review Date : 15-Dec-2015
Dark, moderately deep ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is soft and gently full with aromas of savoury red cherry and berry fruit entwined with dried herb and earthy notes. This has a fruity rusticity to the aromatics. Medium-bodied, the mouthfeel is bright and lively with brisk acidity enlivening the savoury dark red cherry and berry fruits. Subtle, piquant herb, and earthy elements add to the flavours. The fruit is supported by light, grainy tannin grip and fresh acidity, and the palate flows to a softly packed finish with soft, dark cherry and earthy fruit notes. This is a light, earthy and herby influenced country-style Chianti with some grip and freshness. Serve with pasta, antipasto and barbecued fare over the next 2+ years. 85% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot and 5% other red varieties from Vinci, Cerreto Guidi and surrounding areas fermented to 12.5% alc., the wine on skins 8 days. 16.0-/20 Dec 2015 RRP $17.99
