Antinori 2006 Riserva Badia a Passignano Chianto Classico
Chianti Classico is making a quality comeback. Look for a smoky, vanilla, spicy, cedar nose, with bright floral, black cherry, liquorice, savoury aromas. The attack is dry and full-bodied, with good acidity and firm black cherry, vanilla, cedar and tobacco flavours. Best with grilled chicken or pasta with sauce.
