Deep red color with black fruit aromas with oak and spice nuances. The palate shows tart blackberries and sour cherries, slightly acidic with little tannins. This full body wine had a short finish. A little pricy for OK, nothing special.

Really nice Chianti, tannins are a tad bit high. Beautiful aromas of sweet cherry. Good balance of alcohol and acid.

Very pleasant wine lots nice red fruits. Pleasant acidity and very easy to drink perfect for lunchtime or light foods. I had with oysters, tomatoes with white truffle vinegar salad.

Can't go wrong with this one. Always a winner. Enjoyed it with pancetta wrapped pork tenderloin.

Villa Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva 2010 $40 - fresh fruit give ways to supple leather and rosemary on the finish.

Softer acidity, tannic structure is strong, dirt and dryness dominating, very little fruit.
