Podere della Bruciata Barcaiolo Chianti Colli Senesi 2011, Tuscany, Italy
Delicious Chianti Colli Senesi offering aromas of red berries and violet. An elegant wine that strikes the chords of harmony and balance. All the better if you leave it a few years in your cellar. Great pairing with a beef ragu or a traditional Tuscan wild boar ragu.
