Traditionally made Chianti Classico from an American expat who followed a dream. Red cherries, leather, vanilla and red current on the nose. Perhaps a touch of alcohol too. Somewhat less interesting on the palate where the mid to light-weight structure yields a somewhat muted flavor profile. For around $20, it's a good choice.

Cherry, herbs, clay, and a tiny bit of leather. Perfect for anything tomato based pasta dish.

Juicy red cherry, savory notes, menthol, rush of tart acidity on the attack - then fresh into finish. Med- body.

Solid, full-bodied Chianti. Strong tannins but with cherry notes. Best with food.

An everyday Chianti Classico with a slightly more fruit forward style due to the addition of a bit of Merlot. Dark red cherry, clay, dried herbs; extremely drinkable and delicious!

Winner of best capsule top in the business. Oh and a downright respectable traditional Chianti.
