Transparent Ruby red wine. Fruity cherries. Nice fresh chianti acids. Hints of chocolade. Excellent companion of 6 hours brazzed veal cheeks.

Obviousness: a cherry, a leather, a vanilla. Nice chianti classico. But I've expected more.

Fuller-bodied than some Chiantis. The label says “gran selezione” so don’t know if this is the same.

A lil on the strong side for me despite being labeled simpler as “red wine.” Needed to air out about 45 min. #redredwine #laithwaites

Nice blackberry nose - bright acidity and light tannic finish. It's a very lightly oaked Chianti and it's great.
