I am not much of an Italian wine guy. Scratch that. I am not an Italian wine guy. I get the regions (for the most part), I understand the varieties (for the most part). I find the whites disjointed and the reds overly stewed. Having said all that, I have had some very good luck with this wine: black cherry and a bit of heat on the nose, but on the palate, this is spot on. Great Chianti acidity that invites all types of cuisine, with some fruit up front that promotes a grin. Very Good, maybe more. thedrunkencyclist.com
I was really happy with this wine this go around, there were some nice fruit flavors with a bit of earth and ample acidity. I opened this on pizza night and this was near perfect for the meal. Very Good. thedrunkencyclist.com
Solid, and uncomplicated wine that is perfect for pizza or pasta. There is some unmistakable age on it, but it has yet to reach the "stewed fruit" stage that I have seen in quite a few Chianti. Just enough acidity to help the food, but not enough fruit to be consumed on its own. Good. thedrunkencyclist.com
