And back to red for DDTC

I know, we had two bottles of red wine last week but until it gets warmer, I am not sure how much white we will be drinking.

This week was a pairing for steak so @WineGuyTO chose a Castello Sansano Chianti Classico from 2005.  Because it had not been opened beforehand, it got poured through our Vinturi aerator.  The colour was a deep garnet red and the initial nose gave thoughts of raisins and red fruits, very pleasant. The Sangiovese grapes produced good tannins and some acidity to balance the fruits nicely.  The finish was medium and fairly pleasant.  And it seems that we still have more in the cellar!
