|Malcolm Lamont WSET Adv rated this wine as 4.4/5 with the following review:|
Ruby red in colour, this wine exhibits a very attractive nose of red cherry, dark fruit, and some hints of earthiness.
Good varietal character on the palate, that is, it showed it is in the chianti style - Fruit forward, good acidity, and some structural support from the tannins.
This wine is a knock outta the park with the food pairing of Italian meatballs with tomato sauce.
Tasted October 2013

This is a classic Chianti featuring aromas of red cherry, plum, spice and with good fruit and tannins on the palate. The combination of the tomato sauce and meatballs made this pairing a real winner. Tasted October 19, 2013 (89/100)
|Valérie Dufour Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 4.4/5 with the following review:|
This is a blockbuster for a reason: vintage after vintage the wine quality is consistent. It is a very fruity and exuberant wine. A very good wine at this price range that is a perfect companion for pizza or pasta with tomato sauce.

Cherries, tobacco, and cracked white pepper. Easy drinking, always consistent. 86 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)
