The 2020 Fattoria del Cerro Chianti Colli Senesi is made from estate-grown grapes in the southern part of the Chianti region where the warmer microclimate enables producers to make relatively full-bodied Chianti wines. This wine is vivid ruby red in color and displays a bouquet that is fruity with hints of wild black cherry, red cherry, and a delicate balsamic and herbal finish. On the palate, it is soft, yet full bodied with excellent persistence. It is best served with first course dishes, meat and mushroom sauces, veal stews, and roast chicken.
