Wow. What a value. Black cherry fruit with an earthy element - classic Chianti Classico. They've Oakes this a bit which takes nothing away but adds complexity.
Rich mouthfeel and a beautiful replay. All for a low price. But it now
|Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Deep rub. Aroma of freshly pressed plums and black cherries. Bright acidity and medium tannins. Medium-full body. The dark fruit flavours are accented with herbal note and hints of black olives. Score 91.

|Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Plummy, cherry fruit with rather chewy tannins still (for this 8-year-old bottle) A bit of the Italian earthy funk and sweaty leather mingled in. Really quite attractive in that Italian sort of way. Enjoy with The Godfather.
|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Pale ruby coloured with a garnet hue. The bouquet is delicate yet vibrant vibrant Cherries, strawberries, Smoked paprika, roasted tomatoes, cedar branches and dried herbs. Flavours reveal sour cherries, raspberries, pomegranates and sundried tomatoes. Acidity is high with earthy, elongated and elegant tannins. Pair with a game of chess and sundried tomato and p pepperoni pizza. 90 points - tasted July 2018
|Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Deep ruby, the nose showing stewed dark fruit and light spice notes. Medium full bodied with dark fruit, dried fig and chocolate notes. Good balance and freshness on this maturing wine.

This wine is a little muted but still possesses good notes of fresh and dried black cherry, plum skin, dried herbs, mushrooms and camphor. 89 points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
|David Skinner rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Medium dark ruby pink rim. Aromas of plum, cherry and herbs. Medium bodied and well balanced acidity with medium tannins. MOre cherry and plum on the palate with a medium finish.
|Sharon Lécuyer rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Very astringent on the nose and very dry . Pair with a steak.
|Dan Carkner reviewed this wine as follows:|
Violets, anise, and earth complement the blueberries and ripe cherry aromas. A velvety texture and medium body present flavours of blueberry tart, bright cherry, baking spices, earth, and old leather. The tannins are medium and would stand up to rich braised meats and traditional, tomato based pastas.
