2016 Chianti DOCG
“We opened our bottle of Chianti 20 minutes before drinking it, and upon pouring, noticed its beautifully vivid, ruby red color. The taste is dry, fruity and harmonious, it became velvetier as we drank it. We paired it first with sliced prosciutto and melon followed by lightly barbecued poultry.
Villa Graziella Chianti wine smells and tastes like Italy. Molto buono!”
