Canonica A Cerreto Chianti Classico Riserva 2007 (Italy) Add to ...

  • Rating 91
  • Year 2007
  • Food Pairing Grilled red meat
  • Price $18.95

From vineyards in the warm south of the Chianti Classico zone, near Siena, this medium-full-bodied red contains small proportions of cabernet sauvignon and merlot to add weight and roundness to the dominant sangiovese. Eighteen months in French oak gives it a smooth feel and undercurrent of vanilla, complementing the cherry-plum fruit and whiff of violet. This bargain, cellar-worthy riserva should reward five to 10 years of patience and pair nicely with grilled red meat.
