    May 22, 2020 - Generous layers of dark and sweet cherry fruit, black olives and coffee/dark chocolate tones. Great depth, balance and finnish – as always Fontodi´s standard Chianti Classico delivers more than you would expect from a Chianti in this price range. Bravo!

    May 1, 2020 - Still my favourite budget Chianti and delicious with a little bottle age on it. Still need s a good long decant. Great structure and fruit. Love this at £15 a bottle - hard to beat.

    November 9, 2019 - Bu trop jeune. A l'ouverture, le nez est beau, épices douces, prune, léger menthol, mais la bouche est serrée, tendue, compacte. Deux heures de carafe contribuent à apaiser un peu les choses, mais on reste sur un vin costaud, qui aurait eu besoin d'au moins trois ans, et sans doute plus, pour exprimer son potentiel. Mes expériences à cinq ans ou moins avec d'autres millésimes m'avaient donné l'impression d'un vin beaucoup plus accessible en jeunesse.

    August 17, 2019 - Acidity has slightly softened and mellowed a bit compared to a few years ago. Very enjoyable. Still plenty of fruit and depth on the palate. In a good place right now.
