Rossboss 92

Continues to be that 'reference point' for chianti, showing strength, and some eventual depth over the course of the evening. Lots of vibrant acid, tart fruits, red cherries and then some pruney characteristics. I found it more exciting the first time around for some reason but it was enjoyable and so well matched for pizza or other flavor rich foods focused on tomato
