We love Chianti around here and this Chianti Superiore from Villa Saletta is one of our favorites. We have had several of Villa Saletta's wines around here and they always overproduce. The price on this wine is second to none, and we can't believe its as good as it is for the price.
The Chianti opens with a ruby red colour with violet tinges. It has a full, intense aroma, which recalls floral and red fruit notes. In the mouth, the wine is fresh, smooth, and well balanced with a complex consistency, with hints of violets, cherries and vanilla. This blend is well fused with smoky sensations. On the palate, it shows the characteristic intensity of Sangiovese, tannins that boast suppleness in their texture, and a vibrant, dynamic freshness.
