Riper and more candied fruit than many chianti's at this price point. Can drink by itself or with food, I agree it definitely over delivers.

Чуть пыльно, ванильно, с черными ягодами - черникой и голубикой. В развитии пыль (сера?) уходит, появляются плотная слива и черника, тона дуба, корица, кардамон. Плотное, насыщенное вино, с хорошим балансом и чуть суховатыми танинами. 15.5/20 (87/100)

Good Chianti. Light flavor, but tastes like a Chianti should.

This is fabulous. Deep ruby red. Almost garnet red. Perfectly balanced. Nice acidity with some tannins still present. Drinking nicely now. Red fruit finish and tangy.

We are having the 2012, and it feels very authentic and as complex as top of the line chiantis, with an excellent price tag. $58.00 at La Cava in Sherman oaks, retails for $33.00

Medium bodied and fresh, with touches of scorched earth framing bright currant flavors.

Lovely fresh dark fruit, grown on mighty, prehistoric trunks of Sangiovese. Easy enough to drink with lunch.
