Reviews and Ratings

Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

On the nose, this organic Chianti Classico releases notes of plum, black cherry, cedar, rose, and leather with hints of dark cocoa.

Medium bodied and dry on the palate with present tannins and juicy tart cherry and plum notes, with subtle oak and cocoa undertones. Lovely harmony with a pleasant finish. The flavours linger.

Great on its own, or try with eggplant parmesan, lasagna, or with steak.
