At its peak, very soft finish. Doesn’t taste like a Chianti usually does. Lacking in the sour cherry. Lacking in length. Still super enjoyable. Smoothness attributed to the organic nature of the wine.

A good reliable Classico in half bottle to finish off a memorable lunch at Geranium.

Just gorgeous. Peaking today, with plenty of dried cherry, tobacco, cedar and underbrush. Simply gorgeous.

Tart red cherries, baking spice, pepper, and beautiful San Marzano tomatoes equal one of my favorite wines.

Love. Black cherries, savory, earth. Tart balance. Not cheap, but a great value.

Stellar value! Medium-full bodied with a balance between earth and fruit. Mushroom, leather, red cherry, red liquorice, spice, tea, and plum.
