Gagliole’s 2012 Chianti Classico is striking. Beautifully smooth aromas of pure raspberry and blackberry fruit. Texture reigns supreme in a super-expressive Chianti that hits all the right notes. Sweet flora nuances meld into red cherry, mint, spice and rose petal. It’s medium-bodied with crisp acidity, fine tannins and very delicious. Enjoy with fresh pasta and meats.
