Natalie's Score: 91/100

Generous and inviting with mouth-watering flavours of ripe blackberries and black raspberries on the nose of this DOCG red wine. Smoke wraps around the black heart of this wine and the finish is as long as a Tuscan sunset. Seductive notes of dark cherries and blackberries on the finish. Made from 100% Sangiovese grapes by the Manetti family. Great value. OTHER: The 2010 Chianti Classico is a stunning wine that epitomizes the Conca d'Oro amphitheater of vines that distinguishes Panzano in Chianti. The wine shows seamless integration with bright fruit pitted against warmer tones of leather and tobacco. It's like a perfectly balanced scale with rich intensity on one side and elegant fruit on the other. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025. Score - 92 (Monica Larner, erobertparker.com, Aug. 2013)
