James Suckling 90
"A fun and delicious red. Aromas of flowers and light spice with some dried fruits and green olives. Light body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Easy and juicy. Nicely done for the vintage. Serve this slightly chilled. Made from organically grown grapes at the estate of singer-songwriter Sting. Drink now."
The most recent addition to the Il Palagio cellar is this charming, every day chianti, again named after a Sting song "When We Dance". With 95% Sangiovese blended with Canaiolo and Colorino grapes, the alcohol content is 13%. When We Dance is a glorious ruby red color and has a palate that is balanced and smooth. Perfect for combining with traditional Tuscan recipes. Blend: 90% Sangiovese , 5% Canaiolo, 5% Colorino
