    September 5, 2020 - Very good Chianti. Has developed nicely in the bottle. Light color typical of Chiantis, structured and smooth from start to finish.

    January 28, 2016 - Nice round fruity nose. Light, sour plums, attractive.

    January 27, 2016 - Thin fruit, a bit too sour. On the positive side very much chianti and sangiovese, but for the price this is a dissapointment.

    December 12, 2015 - Sour cherry nose. Very bright translucent colour. Strawberries, cherries, sherbet, some meatiness, firm tannic structure. Will improve but drinking well.

    October 29, 2015 - Tight, sour cherry nose. Nice, mid weight, good length. Some sourness on finish, decent wine, attractive.
