Podere Alberese Chianti Superiore DOCG 2009
Classic, perfect red… This Chianti shows aromas of red fruits, violets, dried herbs, bitter cherries and sometimes whispers of sweet tobacco. Chianti has a high acidity and a well-balanced structure full of tannins which make it an incredible wine.

Food Pairing Notes
Bistecca alla Fiorentina (barbecued T-bone steak), steamed pork spare ribs with black bean, confit duck with sweet potato mash. All that dry, powdery tannin makes it ideal with dishes that use olive oil or highlight rich pieces of meat. The high acid cuts through richer fatty dishes and stands up to tomato sauces (pizza anyone?).
