Fonterosso Chianti Classico Riserva 2004 DOCG

From Arezzo Italy, this Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon blend is aged 1 year in oak, with aromas of cherry cough drops, twizzlers, smoked meats and flavors of dried fruits on top of sour cherries. Has a confident maturity and a refreshing finish. This was beautifully paired with Tagliata di manzo con funghi e parmigiano (Grilled and sliced sirloin steak served with button mushrooms and parmesan cheese) at Il Poeta.
