Colour: Clear medium ruby

Palate: Dry, medium body, high acidity, full tannins. Cherry, plum, sapling, earthy.
Finish: Medium finish, drying cherry note.
Fairly standard Chiranti, got a good nose, but not too much in terms of complexity on the palate, doesn’t carry much interesting notes either. Need food with this wine due to the high acidity and rough tannins. Drink now!
