A basic Chianti, Ruby with dark berry fruit aromas, woody and black pepper notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry and cherry with spice notes. Tannins are firm, medium finish ending with a drying character. Drink now.

Bright n ripe and super cheap which is good since my new shirt that is making me feel sassy isn’t. It is tasty but with somewhat of a bristly edge sorta like kissing and getting your face lightly (albeit not ideally) scratched by a five o’ clock shadow. So I’d do this wine but it should shave next time.

Aroma of oak, leather, plum. Dry, high tannin, low-medium acidity. Flavor of spice/pepper.

Cherry, blackcurrant, tobacco and herbaceous notes on nose. Ripe red cherry, blackcurrant and on the finish black pepper and dried herbs. Typically acidic albeit with quite a bit of tannin, so a dryness on the finish. Rating also reflects reasonable price.

Easy drinking, not fruity. Big bite at the end. Dry.

dark raspberry & cherry aroma..Oak, Slate, &.spice. Moderately dry. quite good for $9.00. Decanted for a bit. Fruit & tannins are well balanced. 1st Chianti Ive actually enjoyed. Accompanied with red wine sausage, with sweet peppers, olives, and oregano/thyme potatoes Au Gratin (made without cream & cheese).

It’s ok, I’m not offended. You buy it, I’ll drink it. Something I’d expect at a dinner party with friends that don’t know wine.

It’s a bit of a heavy Chianti. I’ll swipe right next time.
