The Sangiovese grape provides the base for this bright and velvety blend of red Italian wines. Full-bodied and dry with heavy oak, Sangiovese flavours of cherry, cinnamon, herbs, vanilla and violets blend with the deep red with an intense nose of strawberries, ripe plum, peaches, and cherries with hints of leather, tobacco, and fading red flowers for which Montepulciano known. Then, Chianti is added for its medium-body, dry, heavy oak and velvety texture. The result is a complex wine with hints of ripe cherries, berries and peaches with soft tannins and just enough acidity to make the palate bright. A versatile wine, this red complements a number of foods, including meatballs, veal, lasagna, pizza, pasta and roast beef. It also pairs particularly well with tomato-based sauces and aged cheeses such as Stilton, Roquefort and Gorgonzola.
