San Giorgio A Lapi Chianti Classico


San Giorgio A Lapi Chianti Classico is bright ruby coloured with garnet reflections. Expressive and intense on the nose, with scents of black fruits of the forest and a pleasant hint of freshly sawn cherry wood, leather, peppery spice, coffee and dry leaves. Crisp, well-structured, full-bodied and elegant on the palate, with a good balance of tannin, acidity and plump cherry and red fruit notes. Excellent length to the finish. Beautifully complements a Bistecca alla Fiorentina (Tuscan steak- Italy), click here for the recipe.
