Bonacchi Chianti Riserva 2016
The Chianti Riserva from Cantina Bonacchi is a traditional Chianti showing cherry fruit and notes of leather through to a dry finish. It is first vinified in stainless steel tanks and then aged for 20 months in oak casks. This is a serious Chianti Riserva and pairs wonderfully with good steaks, roast meat and game dishes. You can also drink this wine on it's own if it has been decanted for at least an hour to allow the tannins to soften.
