    September 4, 2021 - Impressive fruit, Sangiovese in it’s puriest way. So fresh and irresistable.
    All components are in perfect balance - and this might be catch of the year. Respect.

    August 14, 2021 - Solid for a Chianti with good length and complexity relative to the price point

    August 1, 2021 - Sour cherries and earth. More fruit after some time in the glass. Moderate tannin.

    July 26, 2021 - A very pleasant surprise. No notes but very good QPR for sure. Will buy more.

    July 4, 2021 - Very unique wine that doesn't taste like other CC's I've had. Took a while to unravel, but I enjoyed the story :)
