In the 17 published editions of Gambero Rosso, Italy’s acclaimed wine rating guide, this Tuscan estate has won the coveted Tre Bicchieri (Three Glasses) award 17 times. Ruby with complex berry and elegant spice aromas. On the palate rich ripe cherry and blackberry flavors with sweet spice, cedar, cacao and tobacco enhance the berry fruit. Graceful tannins, savory with good acidity balance, lingering ending with earthy mineral character. Nice!

Really nice. Deep color. Rich and intense. Perhaps a little oak heavy, but really shows how full bodied sangiovese can be.

Medium garnet with a lovely nose of spice leather, cherry, cedar and violet. Medium to full bodied, medium acidity and ripe, mellow tan wins. Aromas of orange peel, cherry, leather and sweet spice - a lovely and surprisingly mature wine.

Totally solid, esp for the price. Great classic Italian red, wry drinkable.

Top-heavy, it simply has too much fruit and acidity on top, lots of impact but short on length and resonance. The regular Chianti Classico has lower density fruit that is in balance with the mineral structure.

Nicely balanced Chianti. Variety of fruit, good acid, low al (13.5%). Nothing special but a decent weekday wine.

Very bright cherry note along with pine cone, worn leather, smoke meat, and hint of ripe plum. Feels tight, almost stiff, on the palate, but you can sense the depth and power. Very firm tannins. Too young, and for now it begs for food.
