Not sure why people are rating this so low. It's smooth, food friendly and funky. Aka... It's Chianti.

This bottle is terrible - undrinkable.

Wonderful rainbow bouquet of cherry, oak, citrus and spice. As it rolls across the palette you are drawn to the unicorn on the bottle, this is when you know this is not your ordinary Chianti. This is a magical bottle that never ends. We easily poured glass after glass and it never emptied. Cheers to you Italian wizards of vino.

Very dry, grassy, raspberries, but smooths out considerably after an hour or so. Not too memorable, but fun to drink. Postscript: we didn’t know that a Sangiovese/Chianti would benefit from a 2-hour decanting process, so I might not have correctly assessed this wine. If we get it again, it’ll receive proper treatment.

Had this at the Labor Day barbecue. I never saw this happened before. Everybody clink glasses and made a terrible face and dumped it in the grass. I picked it out because there was a unicorn on the label. So serves me right

A pedestrian Chianti with a thin start and middle that finishes well with moderate acid.

Old world Sangiovese and Canaiolo. Balanced and smooth. What chianti is supposed to taste like. Love it.
