Chianti Classico 2018, Villa Trasqua
Lively ruby red colour with purple reflections. The nose begins with floral hints of violet and fruity of ripe cherry and raspberry, followed by notes of sweet spices, such as vanilla and liquorice. On the palate it is fresh with a pleasant tannin which makes it vibrant and dynamic. The flavour on the palate is fruity with aromas of cherry and blood orange. The finish is long and pleasant.
