This Chianti is OK but not worth the price. In Italy I tried several Chiantis much superior to this one and at a much cheaper price. Off course, it's Italy and we never get those small local productions. Unfortunately I was influenced by the "rating" marketing scheme. Don't spend more when you can get a reasonable chianti for less. Like i said, it is OK but nothing special in this one. If you don't mind paying extra for the so called 'premium review' go ahead, you are not going to get disappointed, but don't expect anything special. If you never drink Chianti, and your previous experiences were with some cheap Chianti at the local grocery store, then this will be great. But if you are a Chianti connoisseur don't waste the extra money.
