Banfi Chianti Classico 2005 DOCG tasting notes

©2008 photo dave trieger
This Chianti Classico from Banfi is made from sangiovese grapes, has dark ruby color with medium weight, with a nose of dark fruits, cherries, plums, earth/leather and violets. Palate: cherries, tobacco & wood. Great with red sauces but I had it with a porterhouse steak. Let this wine open for a few hours and you'll get the optimum value of this $16 bargain. Also pairs well with Pavaroti singing Nessun Dorma from Puccini's Turandot (how MUSIC ALTERS WINE'S TASTE).
