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.

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

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

Imagine a mouthful of bing cherries, both on the nose and palate, very approachable despite its youth.

The fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity complimented my sugo all’arrabbiata tonight. It's well balanced and already accessible. A good buy at $24
