2006 Le Corti Principe Corsini

Some pasta with fresh tomatoes, basil and a couple grated cheeses called for a Chianti.  This time it was an Agricola Le Corti, Principe Corsini, Chianti Classico from the 2006 vintage.  The nose was red fruit and earth, just like Chianti should smell.  Dark red fruits, good earth tannin, great acid, nice balance, and a good finish.  All this for a reasonable price.  Not spectacular or earth moving, just a good medium weight red wine for summer drinking. 

$15 and 13% alcohol.
