A dry, full-bodied, mouth-watering Italian red wine from the heart of Tuscany. Aromas of tart cherry, earth and sun-dried tomatoes. Made from the iconic Sangiovese grape, this wine is a perfect pairing for pasta in tomato sauce or pizza.

Reviews and Ratings
|Olivier de Maisonneuve rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
a very classical top notch chianti, with aromas of polished wooden bookcases, expensive cigars, and grandfather clock gravely ticking in the library of an english countryside estate.Surprisingly, it is quite lively and fresh on the palate, and full bodied at the same time.With its aromas of dried.fruits and spices, it is a great companion for winter fares and slow cooked meats. Cassoulet,anyone?
|Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Aromas of cherries, vanilla, tomato sauce and a hint of rosemary carry through on the palate
making this a spectacular wine for pizza!
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Classic Chianti? Look no further! Dried cranberry, figs, earthy notes and mix of dried herbs (particularly sage) and some chocolate notes come through on the palate. Medium- light tannins balance with a medium to high acidity make for a great balance! Medium bodied and a luscious earthy cranberry finish.
Pair with a rustic tomato, prosciutto mozzerella Neapolitan pizza.
|Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Nov 22, 2014: Medium ruby, red berry, black cherry, plummy, toasted oak, baking spice, leather/tobacco and dusty mineral. Medium body, cherry, spice, firm dusty tannins balanced by juicy acidity. Tasted alongside lasagna with rich meat/sausage sauce. Nice now, but will likely improve in complexity over the next couple of years to the end of decade.
|Kristin Perrin rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Earthy cherry, licoricy, cigar box nose
Followed by more medicinal cherry palate with bright acidity and medium smooth tannins. Medium bodied and lengthy herby finish
Get me some ragu.
|Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Deep ruby red colour. Nose displays tart cherry, black berry, anise, with a touch of tar. Full bodied with great acidity and integrated tannins. A wine that's meant to be paired with rich food. It's loaded with dark berries, clove, pepper, and leather. Pair this big refreshing red with rich meat lasagne or ossobucco to create the perfect Italian pairing. Tasted October 2014 and November 2014. 89 points. Matt Steeves @QuercusVino
|Terry Jeans - Certified S rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Medium ruby colour, with some rich red fruit, meaty, and smokey aromas. The palate is full of rich, lush fruit with a good splash of tannins and acidity. Great food wine for red sauce, pasta dishes.
|Valérie Dufour - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Smoky aromas of blackberries. A little animal touch.
Nice and easy Sangiovese. Perfect for the table. Spotless.
|Jane LeFresne reviewed this wine as follows:|
