    August 3, 2019 - An OK chianti classico riserva. A bit astringent alcohol first 30 minutes, got better with food and quite enjoyable after an hour. Expected a bit more intensity and lift.

    December 23, 2017 - Really liked this bottle, lots of fruit but not grapey, good tannin slightly rough, nicely balanced, a bit of complexity , drank with pizza, will drink again if the price is right as I got a vg price for the wine.

    July 3, 2016 - Excellent vin! Un des meilleurs produit pour le prix. Belle note de cuir, fumée, long et rafraichissant. On goût les petit fruit des champs frais. Je vais donner du temps à mes prochaines bouteilles!
