2004 Villa Cerna Chianti Classico Reserva

32131I was cooking a little homemade pizza this weekend and spotted this bottle being cleared out at the local liquor store. One of the perks of living in the ‘burbs seems to be that our local stores are often discounting some pretty nice stuff.

It definitely didn’t disappoint. Deep purple in colour, it has some nice earth and floral hints with a bit of toasty espresso. Lots of dark cherry and plum with tight acidity made it nice pairing with the pizza (love my whole wheat crust!). The finish had more dusty violet and again the espresso made an appearance.

This was a really nice bottle for the money. If you see it in the discount section of your local store, it’s definitely worth a go.

$24.99 at LDB stores here in BC.
