I put in a long day yesterday. So it was a welcome treat to go out with a few friends for a fun dinner and bottle of wine.
We had Italian food and 2010 Casa Emma Chianti Classico. The wine is made with 90% Sangiovese grapes, 5% Canaiolo grapes and 5% Malvasia grapes. It was dark ruby with fruity aromas of cherry, strawberry and herbs. Cherry dominated the palate along with subtle flavors of dark currant and soft minerals. Fruit and silky tannins carried over to the long finish. It was very smooth and enjoyed by everyone. http://www.casaemma.com
I have another busy day ahead of me, including a quick stop for a wine tasting that includes wines from California, France and Germany.
