With Pizza, one must serve Italian wines. I love Chianti, the Sangiovese grapes offer up a unique flavor profile that gives me strawberry, cherry and tar flavors. In this particular bottle, there was some muted flavors, and more heavily weighed on the tart cherry side. I think it is a little young as the tannins were very prominent. Nicely acidic but slightly out of balance for me, I think the wine is a little disjointed. Perhaps a few years of slumber and the fruit will emerge, the tannins will meld and the balance will come about. At $32, it is a pricey bottle to take a dive on. The pro’s gave it 91, I would go 89 and 3 stars. Salut….
