2016 Rocca Delle Macie Chianti

Dark in color with a mild nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice cherry flavors, not cab like … On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice smooth tannins and acidity. I would give this wine an 88 or so. I paired it with a tomato sauce based pasta and it held up well.
