Tasting- Codirosso Chianti


Name: Codirosso Chianti

Variety: “5–100% Sangiovese, up to 10% Canaiolo and up to 20% of any other approved red grape variety such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot or Syrah” is what I found on the internet

Region: Tuscany

Country: Italy

Year: 2014

Price: $13

Shop Notes: Ruby red color with purple reflections.  Intense vinous bouquet with hints of violets and dark cherry fruit. The flavor is full of ripe fruit and a hint of spice. It is well balanced and dry. The finish is persistent and satisfying.

My Notes: I kind of thought it smelled sweet as in maybe grapes (duh but not duh) and maybe apple. I thought the taste was very much like berries.

I did not have this with food.
