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.

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!

Ricco profumo, ha lattacha leggere quando assagio primo. Lesperto della enoteca mi consiglia decantase una ora prima. Lho dimenticato. Anche era buono abbastanza.

I haven’t had enough Chianti to debate the merits of this wine relative to others but I would crush this bottle any night of the week. Juicy red fruit, roasted mushroom and tomato, searing acid profile and a bedrock of silky tannins. It costs $27(???!) and contains 10% of Merlot.

Juicy juicy, with plenty of fruit, acid and tannin to provide a balanced framework. Silky texture and food friendly. Great qpr!

Atypically fruit forward thanks to the Merlot, but finishes with velvety tannins and pleasing acidity.
