Piccini Chianti Classico 2014 DOCG, Italy 

My Rating 81 Points.   

Price $10. 

Light ruby in color with a light red rim.

Nose of cherries, raspberry juice, earth, spices, smoke, peppermint, dirt and peppercorn.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate and tart on the attack, with raspberries, strawberries, earth, leather, cherries, spices, pomegranates, graphite, peppercorn and oak.

Tart finish with soft tannins and tart cherries.

This Chianti Classico is simple and unbalanced, with a thin mouthfeel. Much better right out of the bottle, as It becomes very acidic as it opens up.

Drinkable, but better with food. I paired it with Spaghetti and meat sauce.

13% alcohol by volume.
