Chianti Classico Riserva, San Michele DOCG
From an estate dating back to the 1400s, this delicious red is just reaching its peak, using traditional methods but with an attention to detail often lacking in Italian wines, the result is breathtaking. Gobs of soft fleshy fruit flavours on the palate with a whirl of delicate blackcurrant notes on the nose, a complete and rewarding glass, that would partner just the grandest dishes.
