Mission Briefing

Codename:

The Boss of Bosses

Today’s wine is very highly recommended, dear Operative! It represents a truly exceptional value at our low price of just $17.99.

An exceptionally balanced wine from one of the best vintages on record; Wine Spectator Magazine awarded this vintage a fantastic 94 points, the highest rating for many years - before and since.

This is a classic, balanced Chianti that satisfies on so many levels. The wine is equal parts fruit and earthiness, delivering us an old world drinking experience that we just can’t get enough of.

This is a very flexible wine that begs to be enjoyed with a wide range of foods. This lovely Chianti will harmonize with anything you pair it with, rather than compete with it. Pork tenderloin or Prosciutto Melone antipasti.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Dark and rich with vibrant crimson hues with a slightly lighter rim. Multiple rounds of skinny legs fall quickly down the glass.

Smell:

At first sniff, we are reminded of a juicy chocolate covered cherry. Earthy currant, dried blueberry, dried leaves, wood shavings, graphite, fresh soil follow.

Taste:

Dusty and earthy with dark cherry, dried cherry, dried blueberry with woodsy dried leaves and subtlest spice.

Finish:

Dry and delicious, with lingering woodsy dark fruit and earth that goes on for a long time.
