Excellent Chianti. Floral and perfumed. Bing cherry and raspberry. Earthy and very well balanced

Nice Chianti but I get a bit of a medicinal green note on the finish which keeps this from being better. Still, the palate to that point is very nice and there is some good freshness here.

Not my style but very cool, unique, earthy wine. Very lean chianti as it is 95% sangiovese - light to medium body. Definitely old world, rustic, fresh and metallic

Lean is exactly the right word. Not very heavy. Definitely needs to sit

Medium garnet color, typical Italian red bouquet. Been open 45 mins and while a little better, still quite tannic from the start with an acidic/alcoholic bite from start to finish. Having trouble identifying the fruits- not happy with this wine. PS- after sitting in the glass for a long time it finally softened and I increase my rating to 8.6 because while now not bad, I would not buy this again.

Nice, fresh Chianti Classico. Good sour cherry. Never veers into the plum/balsamic spectrum
