The nose is dark and rich, showing sweet herbs, crushed black cherry, lavender and violets with hints of floral undergrowth. On the palate, soft textures give way to a mix of red and blue fruits, hints of spice and savory herbs, all made vibrant through brisk acidity. The finish is medium in length, with a buzz of lingering acids mixed with fine tannin, as tart red fruits and spices slowly fade from the senses. This is so easy to like already, yet sure to improve with mid-term cellaring. — a day ago
Medium Ruby with red fruit aromas and floral spice. On the palate cherry and raspberry with notes of sweet earthy spice. Fine tannins on a medium+ finish, good balance with acidity yielding to a fresh ending with a zing of spice. Drinks well now! Nice! — 9 days ago
Toscana wine evening #2
Typical Chianti Classico with bright black cherry and tomato leaf. A touch of savoury leather / herby side, too. Light & elegant on the palate with bright acidity balancing the fruit.
I prefer the Chiantis from the western hills vs the rest - not as burly & long lived, but so fresh & elegant. — 4 days ago
Drank 5/25/20. Very nice with lasagne.
Nose of earth, black cherry, and cranberry opens to flavors of black cherry, leather, and earth. Very nice balance. Medium finish dominated by black cherry , earth and medium plus tannins. Give this one a 30 + minute decant and a bit of a chill.
3/21/8/4/3 +50 =89 pts.
Unbelievable value Would highly recommend as a "house italian". — 2 days ago
This is a surprisingly serious wine. I was expecting cherries and bright acids, but what I got was earthy, iodiney, balsamic notes on top of the dark cherries. Very soft and nicely balanced, with clingy flavors. I think my brother may have given this to me, and if so, thanks! If not, then I made a good purchase at some point. — 8 days ago
A blend of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Merlot, aged for 2 years in large oak barrels, medium Ruby with dark fruit aromas and enticing herb spices. On the palate berry and cherry flavors, smoky oak with pepper and floral spice. Well integrated soft tannins, long finish ending with mineral tones. Very nice! Good value! — 9 days ago
