A very fruity red with crushed berries and underlying hints of walnuts. Medium to full body. Flavorful finish. Drink or hold.

Istine's 2017 Chianti Classico is bold, racy and absolutely delicious. Sweet red cherry, red plum, mint, spice and intensely sweet floral notes build in a super-appealing, mid-weight Chianti Classico loaded with personality and class. Medium in body, plump and inviting, the straight Chianti Classico is a winner.
Aromatic nose carries scents of balsamic and dried herbs with a note of ripe plum. Black raspberry,
cherry, and white pepper on the palate with good structure and a mineral driven finish.
