Chianti Colli Fiorentini
The choice was a 2011 Fattoria di Lucignano Chiant Colli Fioretini, the Chianti zone just outside Firenze (Florence). The aromas were definitely chianti with tart, red cherries sitting on top of a base of Tuscan earth. The wine had a medium body with cherry flavors and that wonderful dry and dusty finish that is unique to Chianti. Nothing was out of balance and nothing was great about the wine - it was tasty and true to its origins and it washed down the steak just like it was supposed to do.
2011 Fattoria di Lucignano Chiant Colli Fioretini. 14% alcohol and $14.
