Natalie's Score: 90/100
Savoury and juicy with attractive sour cherry notes. Supple and smooth and full-bodied. There's a lot to love in this wine. Racy acidity means this wine will dance with tomato sauce dishes, including pasta.
Chianti food pairings: pastas with mushroom sauce, aromatized white meat, roast lamb, or half-mature cheese..

|Cherie Cole rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
The 2014 expresses aromas of red cherry, ripe strawberry, black plum with earthy undertones. Lots of red fruit and strawberry on the palate, a hint of earth with a sour cherry finish. This wine would pair perfectly with spaghetti and meatballs in tomato sauce. Tasted January 31, 2016.
|Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Cherries and baking spices on both the nose and mouth. Lighter bodied and soft, wonderful with a simple margherita pizza. A great value wine for sure!
Tasted January 2016.

|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Medium burgundy with earthy aromas of plums and ripe strawberries. The berries come thought nicely in the taste, with some sour cherry mixed in and a rounded mouth feel and medium acidity. Great with a meat and tomato based pasta dish.
|Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Medium ruby, simple nose of cherry, berry and earth. Medium light bodied, sour cherry dominates on the palate. Soft tannins and juicy acidity and a shortish finish. Try with a simple pasta with tomato based sauce.

|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Here comes a light easy drinking pizza wine! Predominant aromas include cherry, earthy forest floor and flinty minerality. The palate shows a predominant tart cherry note with high acidity, light tannins and a medium-long finish. Tasted Jan 2016.
