From a challenging vintage, this turned out remarkable well. Tart red fruits, earth and spice. Much better as it sits in the glass.

Smooth and "berry tart" at the same time. Good pairing with a spicy Italian chicken cacciatore.

Very herbal, light spices and finishes with faint oak notes. Definitely does better day after opening

Tangy and savory taste. Very smooth, this will go fantastic with any marinara based pastas.

Very nice chianti - good fruit taste without being overwhelming. Tan label (versus this gold) just as good for more reasonable price.

Smooth but lacking complexity. Almost taste watered down. Not worth the money. Can find the same quality in a 10 -15 dollar bottle.
