Day #225 of the year.

Tenuta di Nozzole Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG

Even if it is Friday the 13th, and it is it is scorching hot, close to Hades’ home temps in NYC, I feel pretty lucky to have the day off, so I plan to kick back this evening with my favorite horror flick, “Silence of the Lambs,” and the perfect bottle of Chianti Classico Riserva from Tenuta di Nozzole: wine chilled to cellar temperature, legally obtained Bell & Evans chicken livers pan-fried in butter, steamed and herbed farmers market fava beans, et voila my Friday the 13th is looking pretty fantastic. This incredibly well-balanced, fruit-forward, and earthy Chianti is the perfect mate for my meal. So I will skip inviting Judas (the 13th guest) to dinner and pray that my good fortume remains intact! What are your plans for tonight? – Salute!

Tasting Notes

Red berry and cherry aromas and flavors and earthy under-notes are shaped by vibrant, fresh acidity and a backbone of firm yet elegant tannins.
