The fragrances exhibit considerable complexity, opening to dark fruit such as plum and black currant, then enriched by a pungent spiciness that betrays cinnamon and clove. The attack offers dense, impressive pulp, and fine-grained tannins that marry beautifully with its alcohol; the result is a solidly-built, but not heavy or extractive, wine with a seamless, long-lingering finish.
A blend of 90% Sangiovese, 10% others (Malvasia nera, Colorino, Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon.
This Chianti is beautiful for the price. I had the oppurtunity to try at a tasting and bought several bottles. Great with a nice tray of Italian cheeses and meats. Loved

Way under rated. This is so smooth yet so rich and fruity. You will love this one.
Best Italian red under $30 I've ever tasted. It is not what I expected from Chianti though. More of a Super Tuscan. Absolutely awesome and affordable enough ($14 a bottle case price) to be an everyday wine. I must be spoiled.....
