    March 21, 2018 - All around nice wine.

    September 12, 2014 - My Grade: VG+. Decanted for 1 hour. Good clean cherry color, some funk on the nose with black fruit, tar, vanilla and vegetal notes. Cherry, plums and cranberries on the palate with some lemon peel notes, good length and bright, juicy, acidity on the sour-cherry finish with well integrated, fine, drying tannins. Tasty and above-average Chianti which pairs very well with food.

    February 16, 2013 - Fragrant cherry nose. Fruit a little weak in the mouth and gradually overwhelmed by pronounced and lingering tannins. A decent everyday Chianti but nothing more.

    July 28, 2012 - Full bodied. Well integrated tannins and acidity but could use a few more years. Nice fruit and tobacco flavors.
