2014 vintage. Colour suggests that there is more than a drop of Merlot and/or Cabernet Sau

Fruity driven Chianti. Not in a bad way.

9 years old, a little past it's prime, but still very good. Nice structure and slowly opening up. Elegant.

After experiencing the '12 in Rome last week, I found the '13 at Cardiff SSM. Very nice, slightly less well integrated than the '12. These wines are excellent with food, I am learning to appreciate medium bodied wines for their ability to pair well with so many dishes.

Sangiovese blended with malvasia nera, colorino, merlot, and cabernet sauvignon produces a wine with spirited blackberry and black currant fruits. A trace of wet leaves and amber sweetness add dimension, but overall this is a blithe and bright-eyed Chianti, best for weeknight suppers. 13.5% abv | $19 (sample)

Nice and ripe but still plenty fruity. Great with eggplant Parm.

$48 at Sea Salt. Slightly vegetable with good fruit and nice balance. Delicious. #MiniWineReview #2GU
