CHIANTI CLASSICO 2013
BORGO LA STELLA
90 % Sangiovese | 10 % Merlot
The Chianti of 2013 is a wonderfully soft and elegant Chianti Classico by Borgo la Stella with very unique characteristics. Its distinctly fruity cherry flavor immediately emerges with the first sip. The nose and palate gradually absorb slightly smoky flavors invoking the Chianti’s pure-flavored harmonic composition.
The Chianti Classico of 2013 is an extremely promising wine that reflects the soil, microclimate and diligent work in the vineyard. Due to its youth, the wine should age for another year, and then its high quality will completely turn into enjoyment.
