    September 28, 2019 - generally "heavy" with some unpleasant vegetal notes. Better on day 2 but nobody really cared for this

    August 26, 2015 - Wow, I see some other people have been less than enchanted with this wine. I echo my review from 7/10/14, but this time I actually thought it was a touch better. A little more fruit and less earth and herbs.

  • t0pshelf Does not like this wine:

    March 12, 2015 - I would have thought it was flawed, but I (unfortunately) got 3 bottles and they all tasted the same. A sickly sweet fruit-dominant syrupy mess.

    July 10, 2014 - This is a great weekday night wine to drink with pasta. Good balance of earth, herbs and fruit. The last time I had this wine was on 10/31/13 with pizza, and I thought it was somewhat abrasive. Not in awful way, but an explosion of fruit. The wine has settled down and integrated nicely. I would buy more wine from this producer because the wines are good and the price is right. 60% of the Chiantis I have had under $15 usually fall in the 80 to 84 point range.

    May 28, 2014 - This wine is seriously funky upon opening. And not in a good way. I thought it was maybe just my first bottle but it is the same with each. It better on day 2 but not worth the wait
