Courtney Flood rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Cherry, herb notes and a strong mushroom overtone. Bright acidity but enough fruit to keep it down to earth. Great with bruschetta. Good value chianti

Gift from Kennedy's. THIS is a lasagne wine, or any pasta with sausage wine. Any time now.
Nick Onischuk Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

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)
Malcolm Lamont WSET Adv rated this wine as 89/100 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.

Valérie Dufour Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 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.
Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

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