Emily Notman rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Smoke and plum on the nose, red fruit on the palate. Medium tart tannins, slightly oaky finish. Paired with spaghetti bolognese nicely, the Parmesan softened the tannins significantly.
Heather Wall Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Medium+ body. Dark ruby colour. Good value Chianti. Black fruit, violets, oak, smoke nose. Palate gave me some licorice notes as well. Enjoyed @zazaza pizza in the Glebe. Paired nicely with my Crazy Horse pizza. Pair with anti-pasto,proscuitto, veal, chicken or Italian cheeses
A fine ruby red color with a floral bouquet of violet on a fruity background of red wild berries. A dry and
mellow taste great freshness, soft tannins and a medium to full body, long taste with a sweet finish.
