Wine of the Week

comment
$23-$26
A Tuscan classic! A wine for connoisseurs of fine Chianti and those who aspire to be. Huge fruit that just goes on and on. Layers of deeply extracted fruit flavors of black cherries and blackberries make this a stunning wine. The Sangiovese grapes furnish firm tannins that add structure and balance, making this a wine to drink now or lay down for several years. The wine has great depth for a Chianti Classico -- one can only imagine what the Riserva is like, or the great '97 vintage! Rated 90 in Wine Spectator and 87 in Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate. Rush out to get this one while you can. Available at The Wine Seller, Elio's Wine Warehouse, and Hebert Fine Wine and Food, Destrehan. --Brenda Maitland
