Very smooth and full-bodied with seductive aromas of black cherry and spice. Savoury and meaty. Perfect for steak.

|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Tart black cherry, leather, underbrush, savoury herb. Dusty medium tannins. Pairs well with dishes featuring traditional Italian tomato-based savoury sauce. Tasted 2014 vintage in March 2018, decanted 2h. 90 points
|Keith O'Hagan Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Appearance: medium Garnet core
Nose: Ripe red cherry fruit
Palate: Ripe cherry fruit morphs to velvety tannin, WBA (Well balanced Acidity)
Overall; Great example of a Chianti that can compliment either a medium rare steak or a Bolognese sauce
|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Beautiful red cherry, red raspberry, red flowers, fresh Italian herbs and fresh mushroom. Very pretty. 90 points.
|Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
A very good Chianti Classico with a great nose and vibrancy.…
Presentation: Clean, plain label, with a hint of sophistication
Appearance: Pale garnet
Nose: Medium nose, sweet perfume with ripe red fruit (e.g., strawberry, plums, raspberries), mocha, spice and a hint of minerality and earth
Taste: Dry, medium body, medium-high acidity, medium, bitter tannins, red berries (sour cherries, plums), graphite, and a touch of green
Finish: long sour red fruit and mineral/dirt finish
Overall impression: A wine with a really nice nose – we could keep smelling this wine for a long time – and a vibrant taste that is well balanced between fruit and other notes. This wine would pair very well with an array of pasta dishes.
|Simon Chen rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Great bright red fruits on the initial palate that balance with the acid. It has a bit unpleasant wood finish at the end but should go away with decanting.
|Colette Martin rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|

|Sharon Aubie rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:|
Chocolate and leather on the nose. Lots of pepper and woodsy cedar (too much) on the palette. Wasn't for me.
Tasted March 13, 2018.
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier reviewed this wine as follows:|
Here we have a moderately concentrated stewed cherry and spice-forward Chianti Classico. Acidity means excitement to my palate and my palate craves excitement! This Chianti is easy drinking and versatile when it comes to pairing with braises or stews but it's not exciting. The fruit notes are most prominent, it lacks balance and where are the earthy/savoury notes? Perhaps it's just my bottle. Nevertheless, don't stop exploring Chiantis. They range from quite pleasant to incredible and never disappointing. Tasted Mar 2018 by @sommsosa
|Casa Al Vento Aria 2014 is a fragrant Chianti Classico from the Tuscany wine region with blue flowers, wildberry and earthy notes. On the palate, this fresh Chianti is juicy with ripe, small red berries and baking spice flavours and easy tannins. - Community Wine Reviews|
