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.

Brilliant chianti. The nose takes time to reveal dark cherry, plumb, and sandalwood. The palate is medium bodied but the energy and grip is spectacular. Cherry and tobacco for years.

Flavorful well balanced Chianti. Layered earthiness supporting vibrant red fruits. Medium to full bodied with solid backbone.

Lots of oak, smoke, leather. Medium tannin. Not enough fruit. Mushroom, heavy merlot.

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.
