Banfi 2014 Chianti Classico (DOCG), $11.04-$14.99, 87 points, was a bright red wine color with a clear wine ring.
Aromatic red fruit nose accented with a hint of cedar was pretty straight-forward.
Medium-bodied with good acidity and thin tight tannins managed red fruit, blueberry, and black tea flavors.
Finished a bit astringent on developing tannins, an easy 12.5% alcohol, and cherry flavors.
Paired well with my Chicken Cacciatore.
