Drank 5/25/20. Very nice with lasagne.

Nose of earth, black cherry, and cranberry opens to flavors of black cherry, leather, and earth. Very nice balance. Medium finish dominated by black cherry , earth and medium plus tannins. Give this one a 30 + minute decant and a bit of a chill.

3/21/8/4/3 +50 =89 pts.
Unbelievable value Would highly recommend as a "house italian".

100% Sangiovese from Chianti Classico region which was aged 24 months in oak. This wine has aromas of cherries, roasted tomatoes and a hint of sweet tobacco. Medium-light bodied, and not overly flavorful. It starts out fruit forward but tertiary flavors of clay and clove come through as it opens up. These tertiary flavors linger for a surprisingly long finish. Great value and paired well with a spicy pepperoni pizza! ($9) [5/26/16 ]

Great Chianti (100% sangiovese), oaky, wild herb, cola with tabacco hints, pairs very well with Fettuccini al pesto. I will recommend this wine.

Lots if red cherries, cranberries, tomato leaf, tobacco, dried roses. Ample acidity and moderate tannins.

Kirkland Signature, Chianti Classico Riserva, 100% Sangiovese. Villa Cafaggio estate. Black cherry, cola on the nose which is little closed. Blackberry, cola, leather and a little licorice on the palate. A little tannic on the finish but overall pretty well balanced. Not many $9 Chianti Reserva that drink this well.
