Tasting Notes

Il Tarocco Chianti Classico - 2014 - DOCG - Wine Review - Trader Joe's

December 10, 2016

This is another fine wine from Italy at Trader Joe’s for a very reasonable price considering the quality.  The wine is dry and totally smooth with an earthy mouth feel and enough bite/character to separate this from a lesser Chianti.   142 more words
