Fontissimo (Papa's Best) Le Fonti 2003 IGT Alta Valle Della Greve

The Schmitt-Vitali family owns and operates the Fattoria Le Fonti, In the Chianti Classico region of Tuscany, in the village of Panzano where this delicious red wine is made from 65% Sangiovese and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. It is followed by 18-20 months maturing in new French oak barriques (upon further research it may also contain a bit of Merlot).

Juicy and fruity, with colors of deep, ruby red and aromas of blackberries, licorice, and chocolate; that evolve into intensely smooth flavors of ripe cherries, chocolate, dark fruits, and a finale as fresh and bright as a clear summer's afternoon.
