Sean O'Regan Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

August 7, 2014: Medium ruby, dried cherry, cheddar, toasty oak, dried herb and earth on the nose. Medium body, cherry, red berry, charred oak, grip to the tannins and nice acidity. A little rustic with a medium finish. Pair with pizza or pasta with tomato meat sauce.
Paul Brannen reviewed this wine as follows:

Young by Italian standards, this winery was founded in 1973 - so it's no wonder their take on Chianti Classico is modern. This is food-friendly with cherry notes and hints of grilled herbs. It sings with fine fare like meat lasagna, antipasti or veal scaloppini.
Malcolm Lamont WSET Adv rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Medium Ruby in colour, this Chianti Classico (from a more original region of Chianti) exhibits red fruit, earthiness, and oak - a portion of which having a cheese rind character indicating older oak.

On the palate, refreshing sour cherry fruit flavours alongside chocolate oak and earthy tones, mouth-coating youthful tannins, and a medium-long finish.

This would accompany tomato sauce based meat dishes beautifully.
