When we dance 2013
The most recent addition to the Il Palagio cellar is this charming, every day chianti, again named after a Sting song When We Dance. With 95% Sangiovese blended with Canaiolo and Colorino grapes, the alcohol content is 13%. When We Dance is a glorious ruby red colour and has a palate that is balanced and smooth. The fragrances are of cherry and iris. Perfect for combining with traditional Tuscan recipes.
