Big and bad for this grape. Plenty of tannin, oak and fruit. Maybe a touch over the top to take it putt of balance.

Deep purple color. Aromas of vanilla, raspberry, cherry, and spice. Similar flavors with a medium finish.

First Chianti style spent money on. Pretty good definite tomato and acid. This one has tannins as I’ve come to expect from macchia.

Really easy to drink! Goes with a lot. Not too deep for just sipping.

Oak, vanilla, red fruits on the nose. Similar flavors with the addition of spice. Medium+ tannins, medium acidity. Little too oaky for me. But otherwise a solid QPR.

Great bottle of California sangiovese. This is that bottle that everyone says, "I've never heard of that, but it's amazing."
