Always love a Chianti Classico! Make sure it has the black rooster! Strong flavours and easy to drink, went well with my steak and chorizo burger.

Great chianti! Bold, heavy tannins, balanced with dark fruits, part on the palate!

2nd bottle of this wine in as many weeks. This one not quite as developed or complex as the last but still a good example of this Chianti vintage. Typical dark cherry, with some wood and spice, but a little disappointing on the finish. Chalk it up to this individual bottle as the last one was very quite lovely!

Very enjoyable Chianti Classico from the 2010 vintage. Deep ruby in colour, the wine shows lots of juicy ripe black cherry on the palate. It opens up to reveal layers of leather, cedar, a little chocolate and a subtle smokiness. This is a full bodied wine with well balanced tannins and a gorgeous lengthy finish
