Smoked pork belly with sour cherry and cranberry on the nose. Slight hints of incense, coal and pencil shavings. The palate is gamy and rich. Reminiscent of bone marrow. Dark berry fruit over animal fat. It's very savory. It's so salty and savory it rather lacks a balance of fruit. Perhaps it needs more time to integrate.

Excellent wine. Full, rich plum and sour cherry flavors and aromas give way to a palate that is rich and velvety but not heavy, nor is it woody or stiff. Supple, smooth--everything you are looking for in a Chianti and never find--especially not under $20.

Pours a light crimson color with light pink hues on the edges. Simple nose with some light red cherries and raspberries. Starts off with a mild amount of fruit and lasts throughout. Not overly complex. This wine seems to have a lot of acidity but not much else. Not a wine to drink alone as it needs food to take away from the acidity. We served this with some pasta and red gravy. This is an affordable easy drinker.

This is what Chianti should taste like, with plenty of dark cherry and floral aromas and flavors that say Sangiovese. Fresh and fruity. Drink now.

Pretty dried cherry and plum character, with a citrus and cream undertone. Medium body. Fresh finish. Drink now.

Shows a more laid back, complex character, with delicate plum and cherry aromas and gentle red fruit flavors.


External Review

Very attractive aromas of blackberries, flowers and plums. Medium-bodied, with light tannins and a juicy finish. Best after 2003.

#47 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010.90 Points - Wine Spectator The wine offers a brilliant ruby red color. As time passes, the hue is enriched with garnet tones that, as the years go by, lighten fur
