A truly classic Chianti in all senses, from signature aromas of dark fruit, sun-dried tomato and dried herbs, to mouth-watering acidity for a wide range of dishes from pasta in tomato sauce to spicy sausages. Great price.

Reviews and Ratings

Jacinthe rated this wine as 82/100
A very accessible Chianti that's easy to love. Yes, the acidity is there but in balance. Attractive aromas of dark cherry, earthy nuances and some spice. This wine is a blend of mostly Sangiovese grapes, with a splash of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. - Community Wine Reviews
