Not bad. Good. Not extraordinary but it’s gonna go with Uber eats fries. The tannins , acid, alcohol and body are all in sync. It’s just not complex. But it’s fun and drinkable. Just missing the elements I usually look to a Chianti Classico to equal fun (balsamic, flowers, more animal and tarter fruit). But do-able if you need a grocery store vino.

Blackberry, raspberry, cherry, cranberry, vanilla and loamy earth. Good structure and well-integrated tannins.

Clear cherry red. Shy nose of earth and black cherry. Medium tannins on entry. Very closed palate to start. Opens up to dark cherry and leathery earth. Definitely sings with Tuscan fare.

Deep transparent ruby. Tart cherry and strong tea on the nose and palate. Medium firm tannins and medium plus acidity. Dark medium finish. Great value.
