Sangiovese with a little merlot mixed in. Mild leather, medium tannins, robust, a little dry. Nice mouth feel. A little heavier than most Chianti's (the merlot), but creative use of the grapes. Hats off to the wine maker.

Earthy Chianti with great depth, full body and soft, rounded tannins for a smooth finish. Very nice.

Good Chianti once it has about 1 hour of air. Cherry to start, with a mild bite in the finish. The quality of this wine relative to its price is remarkable, and I would recommend it for that reason. The finish is short and without the firm astringency expected from top Chianti.

Questa botteglia e’ il secondo che abbiamo bevuto. Ancora buono e equibilibrato. E’ certamente buono mercato con 15 dollari a Empire State Wine.

Hell yes. This has the potential to be the foundation of your “everyday” wine list. Sangiovese for the win!
