Vera Czerny rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This is a solid and true example of Chianti Classico region. Nice ruby color with aromas of fresh cherries and cloves. A lot of fruit expression on the palate and good balance of acidity. The tannins will smooth out if it's laid down in cellar for a few more years. A bit overpriced to my taste. Sorry to say that I have tasted better Chianti Classicos, with lower price tag. The tartness in the wine makes it great for pairing with any Italian cuisine or tomato based dishes.
